IRIS FORRESTII HYBRIDS
We are offering an attractive mix of various hybrid forms of this lovely plant from southern China, with flowers that vary from lemon yellow, through shades of purple and mauve, all with purplish veins, held on strong stems above clumps of narrow, almost grassy leaves.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
