Are you looking for an early spring flower to plant alongside your crocuses and snowdrops? Dwarf iris, or Iris reticulata, is the perfect addition to an early spring garden, appearing out of the cold ground with vibrant 4- to 6-inch tall blooms.

Shake off the winter blues with the bright, cherry blooms of this colorful collection. Ideal for rockeries, borders and containers. Height: 15cm (6"). Supplied as 5/6cm bulbs.
This is a yellow-flowered reticulata iris. It is a low-growing bulbous iris that blooms in March to early April in the St. Louis area, at about the same time as snowdrops (Galanthus), glory-of-the-snow (Chionodoxa) and the early crocuses. Bright primrose-yellow, 2” diameter flowers with tiny brown or black spots on the falls appear on naked stems (scapes) growing 4” tall. Narrow, grass-like leaves elongate to 12” after bloom, but eventually disappear by late spring as the plants go dormant. Flowers have a sweet fragrance.
How to Grow Dwarf Iris Bulbs:
1. In the Fall, choose a spot that is mostly sunny or has only partial shade.

2. Planting Dwarf Iris bulbs is fairly simple. Bulbs look much like a small onion, with wiry roots growing out of one site and a spike on the other. Plant with the roots pointing down and the spike pointing up.

4. Follow the rule of thumb when planting bulbs and give the bulbs at least 2 times their height of soil above them. Dig a 3-4 inch hole, drop the bulb into it and cover with soil.

5. Regarding the spacing between bulbs, if planting in beds, leave approx 3 inches between each bulb. If you are planting in containers, you can cluster them a little closer together.

5. After planting, water well so that the soil above the bulbs settles.

6. Dwarf Iris bulbs will flower in the Spring. After the flowers die down, the plant can enjoy a warmer rest period. You don't have to water too much during this rest period. Leaves will also die back and at this point, you can choose to tidy up the plant and remove the old leaves or just let nature take its own course.
