The flowers are a striking dark blue, punctuated by deep purple markings and a bright, golden strip. Iris ‘Harmony’ will multiply easily creating lovely bright areas in your garden. The leaves are narrow and upright.
Dwarf Iris flower August/September when there is not much else about. They even have a fragrance, but you have to get your nose right in there!
Their botanical name, reticulata refers to the outer layer of the bulb which looks like a net. This Dwarf Iris blooms late winter to early spring.
Very hardy bulbs that will tolerate frost, full sun to semi shade and any well drained soil. Plant Dwarf Iris ‘Harmony’ 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. The bulbs are small, so mark the spot so you don’t lose them! Fertilise them with the flower in spring with a high potassium or liquid fertiliser.
Dwarf Iris ‘Harmony’ look wonderful in a rockery, pot or towards the front of a garden bed. You get one or two flowers per bulb so they are best planted in clumps.
