Iris Reticulata Pauline

Good for cutting. Perfect for rockeries or naturalising under trees. Prefer well-drained soil in sun or part shade. Height 20cm (8”). Spread 10cm (4”). Fully hardy bulbous perennial. Supplied as 5/6 cm bulbs.

Additional Information

Drought tolerant. Once the flowering period has ceased, leave the foliage in place as the remaining leaves will gather sunlight to create a vital food source to strengthen these plants for the future. Foliage may be removed during their dormant period. Propagate by divison in autumn. All parts may cause severe discomfort if ingested, contact with the sap may irritate the skin. Fully hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
