PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth ,
A dependable, robust bearded iris with a profusion of pale-blue blooms in spring, contrasting well with the grey-green, sword-shaped foliage. Makes a good cut flower.

NOTE: Depending on season, plants, when available, may be trimmed back and/or barerooted for shipping.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Plant the rhizomes shallowly, preferably in free-draining soil, so that any roots are covered but the top surface of the rhizome is 0.5in/1cm above soil level. Make sure to provide water until the rhizomes establish. May need a little support on exposed sites. Cut back flowering stems after flowering and cut the whole plant hard back in autumn. When the plant becomes congested, lift and dispose of old or diseased parts of rhizomes, replanting newer sections that have good 'eyes' for the next season, 18-24 in apart.
