Dwarf Irises

Iris reticulata is one of the very first irises to bloom in a year. It is a dwarf, bulbous type of iris with narrow leaves. It is native to Iran and Caucasus, but widely cultivated and spread in the temperate zone.
I have them in my rock garden and under the hydrangeas where they started popping out through the ivy groundcover.


  1. Do your Irises come up consistently year after year? Mine seem to die very easily! Over the last few years I have planted loads of them around a Crab Apple tree that is outside my front door, but they only seem to last a year or maybe two.

  2. Pretty, have a great day with love Janice

  3. I keep adding a few irises but this year seems to be a poor year for the ones I planted last year - I hope all the wet hasn't rotted them.


I love your comments and appreciate your visit. Thank you!
