Dwarf uncommon bearded Iris from Eastern Europe with yellowish brown flowers.
This Iris will keep low whilst flowering venturing only slightly higher than 7cm with summer foliage. Flowering mainly in April-May these can sporadically flower through summer. Ideally grown in a sunny free draining soil with rhizomes visible on surface. Grown in an alpine rock garden, border or container this plant benefits from rhizome cutting/slicing to continue good flowering. To do this we recommend using a clean knife to cut up rhizomes into smaller segments every other year.
