Iris reticulata Eye Catcher

This incredible Alan McMurtrie hybrid has larger flowers than most Iris reticulata varieties. It is white with striated deep ink-blue star bursts on the standards and falls decorated with yellow stripes amidst a mini galaxy of variable deep blue spots. The overhead view is just stunning. The Fall 2019 top size bulbs are 5 cm/up. Early April. Plant 4" deep and 4" to 5" apart. HZ: 5-9. 5" to 7".

Irises are The Art & Soul of Spring.

  • Information
  • Rock Garden Iris
    These early naturalizing Rock Garden Iris have standards, the inner upright petals, and falls, the outer petals that open downward, often revealing contrasting colors on the petal's spine. Clusters of Rock Garden Iris dotted along the length of a garden border or winding path are so lovely in early spring. (They are also good for forcing: pot them up, precool them at a consistent, dark 35°F to 48°F for six to eight weeks with moderate watering. Bring them into the house~they will bloom two to four weeks later.) Bulb size: 6 cm/up. Early April. Plant 4" deep and 4" to 5" apart. HZ: 5-9. Height: 4" to 6", unless otherwise noted.
