Wordless Wednesday - Iris

Photo by Karen.


  1. Iris Katharine Hodgkin (reticulata). Family: Iradaceae. Soil: clay, sand, loam. PH alkaline/ neutral. Dwarf bulbous iris growing to 12cm with pale blue flowers in late winter/spring. The falls are heavily veined with a deeper shade of blue and marked yellow at the base, with slender leaves that elongate after flowering. Can be grown in any aspect.

  2. Beautiful! I have some out in my garden (different variety) and have realised that I must buy more next autumn!

    1. They are a joy, aren't they. I'm always amazed how delicate they look, but they just keep popping up through the icy weather, undeterred.
