Order Iris Reticulata Painted Lady bulbs
The Iris Reticulata Painted Lady is a dwarf iris. The flower of this bulb has a light purple and white color. The bulbs are hardy. They look great in pots and containers. But of course also at the front of the border.
This small iris is native to the Turkey and Caucasus region. There they were grown on a large scale. They flower very early in the season. The flower is very large in relation to the rest of the plant. When the bulbs feel well in place, they will come back for several years. The only disadvantage of these small irises is that the leaves only really start to grow after flowering.
The bulbs are best planted in the fall. Plant them 6 to 8 cm. deep. Iris Reticulata do well in a pot or container. The flowers smell wonderful.
