This newly-discovered, very rare, high-elevation iris relative, from the cloud forests of Guatemala and Mexico, makes a long succession of exquisite, brilliant red, three-petalled tubular flower which are held above most attractive pointed and pleated leaves. Very few seeds collected.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
