A new addition our range, Iris Painted Lady is a work of art. It looks as if the ivory white blooms have been painted in watercolour with flecks and streaks of pale dusky blue and yellow markings. Native to Turkey, they love to be in sunny spots where the soil has good drainage. Iris are perfect for rockery displays, containers and the front of a border. Height 10cm. Flowering in early February-March they are frost hardy and will push their way up whatever the weather, even through the snow. 5/6cm bulbs supplied.

Planting

Plant at 8-10cm deep.

Soil Type

Well drained, neutral or slightly alkaline soil

Bulbs are to be planted 8cm deep and about 10-12cm apart, in well drained soil. It is often best to try to position then with plenty of access to sun. For best results, plant in September through to November.
Take some care to prevent slugs and snails from attacking the iris once planted. Most Iris can naturalise well if left undisturbed or alternatively bulbs can be lifted and separated in Autumn. After flowering feed with a high potash fertiliser to encourage large bulbs to form.
