Dwarf Iris ‘Danfordiae’ produces lightly perfumed, brilliant yellow flowers with a smattering of cheeky freckles. Each bloom is 5cm across and open late winter to early spring. These are very hardy bulbs that will tolerate frost, full sun to semi shade and any well drained soil.
Plant Dwarf Iris ‘Danfordiae’ around 8cm deep and space 5cm apart. Water in well, then only if rainfall is low during growth. Bulbs don’t need to be lifted and can be left in the ground to naturalise and they tend to multiply steadily.
The bulbs are small, so mark the spot so you don’t lose them! Fertilise Dwarf Iris ‘Danfordiae’ with the flower in winter/spring using a high potassium or liquid fertiliser.
Dwarf Iris ‘Danfordiae’ looks wonderful in a rockery, pot or towards the front of a garden bed. You get one or two flowers per bulb and they look best planted in clumps.
