Of all the Juno Iris this is undoubtedly the most trouble free. Beautiful April blooms, with primrose yellow standards and golden falls, form in clusters of up to 6 flowers per stem. Iris bucharica is quick to establish and rapidly forms dense clumps of glossy, furrowed, upright foliage. These spring flowering Irises are rarely seen in gardens despite their robust habit and reliability. Perfect for planting in rockeries and associates nicely with tulips and other low growing spring bulbs. Height: 40cm (16"). Spread: 15cm (6").

When growing Juno iris, allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it in order to feed the bulb for the following spring. Divide overcrowded clumps of Juno iris bulbs in autumn. When transplanting Iris bulbs, take care to avoid damaging their fleshy roots. Keep pots of Juno Iris just moist during their dormant period and gradually increase watering as growth begins. Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.
Plant iris bucharica bulbs in late autumn, at a depth of approximately twice their own height. Choose a position in full sun on any free draining soil. To create a natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land. Alternatively, plant bulbs in deep containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No. 2 and grow them on in a greenhouse.
