Iris reticulata 'Violet Beauty'

Violet-Scented Iris

Their dainty spring blooms come in a rainbow of colors and are excellent for flower gardens, containers and cutting gardens. Commonly grown types include English, Spanish and Dutch hybrid irises. The dwarf Viole-Scented Iris (Iris reticulata), with purple flowers edged in gold, is often grown in rock gardens. Plant dormant bulbs along with Tulips and Daffodils. Allow to become relatively dry during summer, until growth resumes in the fall or early spring.
