Iris ‘George’ has a sweet fragrance and opens late winter to early spring. The leaves are narrow and don’t generally grow until the flower is fading. Each bloom is 6-8cm across.
These are very hardy bulbs that will tolerate frost, full sun to semi shade and any well drained soil.
Plant Dwarf Iris ‘George’ around 8cm deep and space 5cm apart. Water in well, then you only need to worry if rainfall is low during growth, or of course if they are in pots. The 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, and it is a good idea to mark their spot so you don’t lose them! Fertilise Dwarf Iris with the flowers, in winter/spring using a high potassium or liquid fertiliser.
Dwarf Iris ‘George’ 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.
