This easy and vigorous juno iris grows to very little more than 6 to 8 inches tall, the most attractive flowers being borne in the early spring with blue-purple blooms with white to blue or even lavender markings which are strongly veined around the crest. Glossy bright green leaves with white margins add to the pretty effect. This lovely gem slowly expands into a strong clump.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
