Description
The canary-yellow flowers of Iris danfordiae are some of the first to welcome the spring, from as early as January. This species may be small but its bright blooms make a big impact! They fragrant flowers appear on short stems which gradually elongate to around 30cm (12") as the flowers fade. Iris danfordiae is ideal for planting throughout rockeries and gravel gardens, or dotting in bold clumps throughout the front of borders. Height: 15cm 96"). Spread: 7cm (3").


1 litre potted iris (11 bulbs per pot) (TKA2720)
50 iris bulbs (45653)

How to Grow
Plant Iris danfordiae bulbs in late autumn, at a depth of approximately twice their own height. Choose a position in full sun in moist, 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 on in a greenhouse or on cool sunny windowsills for an early indoor display.
More Info
When growing Iris, allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it. This will help to feed the bulb and ensure another cheery display next spring. Divide overcrowded clumps of bulbs in autumn.
