This breath-taking dwarf Iris is a real stand out variety that is sure to catch everybody's attention in early spring. Gorgeous canary yellow orchid-like flowers will bring energy to any border, with each petal carefully adorned with light brown freckles. These cheerful flowers are ideal for welcoming back the sun after a dark, cold winter. You can plant Danfordiae in pots for the patio, plant them in window boxes, or even plant them en masse at the front of the border, for a blaze of sunshine.
Bulbs are to be planted 8cm deep and about 10-12cm apart, in well drained soil. It is often best to try to position then with plenty of access to sun. For best results, plant in September through to November.
Take some care to prevent slugs and snails from attacking the iris once planted. Most Iris can naturalise well if left undisturbed or alternatively bulbs can be lifted and separated in Autumn. After flowering feed with a high potash fertiliser to en courage large bulbs to form.
