The most familiar of the dwarf, bulbous irises, whose brightly-coloured, deliciously fragrant flowers, set amidst curious pointed leaves, appear in late winter and early spring. They are very hardy and easy to grow, and are ideal for a sunny border or container.
Irises are a vast genus of plants, ranging from diminutive rockery varieties, to imposing border specimens. Some are grown from bulbs, others from thickened underground stems known as rhizomes. Nearly all, however, share the same beautiful and easily recognisable flower form - 3 erect inner 'standard' petals and 3 hanging outer 'fall' petals.
