Iris 'Harmony' Overview

Iris 'Harmony' is a dwarf early spring-flowering bulbous perennial cultivar that produces deep blue flowers, with a white throat in the centre and a bright yellow central band. Petal edges are slightly feathered, giving flowers a delicate ruffled appearance and typically grows to 12cm in height. Ideal for planting in gravel and rock gardens, these alpine bulbs can be grown in raised troughs or pots or along the edges of paths and patios where they will receive the dry summer conditions they thrive in. Preferring a sunny location or light shade with well-drained soil, these easy to grow bulbs need to be planted in autumn. Dig a hole one 10cm deep and plant the bulb pointed end up. Leave the leaves to die back naturally as this helps fatten the bulb for next year. Part of the Reticulata Group of Irises, these include small bulbs that produce narrow leaves and purple, blue or yellow blooms in the spring with a characteristic fibrous net around their bulbs. This plant is occasionally listed under its synonym name of Iris reticulata 'Harmony'
