Iris reticulata is an early flowering iris, bearing pale blue to deep violet blooms with central yellow splashes down the middle of each petal, from late winter to early spring. It's perfect for growing at the front of a sunny border, and can also be grown in pots.
For best results grow in well-drained soil in full sun. Plant the rhizomes 5-10cm apart at twice their own depth. To propagate new stocks, divide bulbs from mid-summer to early autumn.
