From May until early July, this stunning dwarf form of the alternative to the taller irises, produces disproportionately wide and large, electric blue flowers which each have a white, inner halo and purplish veins. Flowers are held on sturdy stems above solid clumps of narrow, green sword-like leaves. Very cold tolerant, this short, grassy leaved Iris species, native to Siberia and Alaska, is a perfect choice for edging, or in the sunny rock garden. It is also effective when mass planted as groundcover, when it will grow in sun or semi-shade, preferably in a moisture retentive position.

Sowing Advice

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.
