Vibrant violet petals on short stems. These blooms are an absolute delight.
The 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.
Dwarf Iris are very hardy bulbs that will tolerate frost, full sun to semi shade and any well drained soil. Plant Dwarf Iris 'Violet Beauty' 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 'Violet Beauty' looks 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.
