Bearing deep violet-blue flowers with narrow, deeply marked, blue and white falls and violet veins, this dwarf plant deserves to be more widely grown. From Southern Italy, the Balkan peninsula and Turkey, this plant is almost impossible to spot in the grass after flowering as the leaves are totally grass-like. This species, which is pollinated by ants, is closely related to Iris graminea.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
