Organic purple dwarf iris

The purple Iris reticulata 'JS Dijt' is an enchanting dwarf iris that unfolds its beautiful flowers as early as February. With a height of 15 to 20 centimeters and wide-open purple flowers, she has a beautiful appearance. The flowers have a yellow stripe in the center surrounded by white streaks. The leaves are gray-green and appear during flowering.

Because these irises bloom so early in the year, they provide bees with nectar at an early stage, which is crucial. This plant is truly a favorite among pollinators! In addition, they spread a subtle scent.

The flower bulb is winter hardy and very suitable for naturalization, it comes back faithfully every year.

How, where and when do I plant a dwarf iris bulb?

The flowerbulbs of this Iris need a cold period. Plant them in the ground in the fall from September to January. The planting depth is 2 to 3 times the height of the flowerbulb itself and the planting distance is 2 to 3 times the width of the flowerbulb itself.

Plant it in a sunny to semi-shaded position in a nutrient-rich, water-drained, preferably sandy soil. It is even suitable for rock gardens! Also suitable for places under deciduous trees or shrubs. We recommend planting it among crocuses in a lawn, for example, they bloom at the same time and it will steal the show among the crocuses with its wide flowers and striking colors.

Care of the Iris reticulata

The flowerbulb of the Iris reticulata thrives beautifully in a suitable location and can naturalize, returning faithfully every year. For optimal results, feed organically every year.
We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!

Propagation

The reticulated bulbs of the Iris reticulata multiply underground. Dig the flowerbulbs out of the ground at the beginning of summer and store them in, for example, a warm shed. Replant the flowerbulbs separately in the fall.
