Close cousins of the familiar garden Irises, these gorgeous diminutive plants make slowly spreading colonies in almost any position. With spectacular yellow-throated, darker-veined violet flowers they never seem to become a problem with their star-like blooms on grassy foliage which appear from spring through early summer, when they will make compact-clumping, long-lived additions to any garden.
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.
