How-To-Guides

Dwarf Iris (Reticulate Cantab)

Beautiful Dwarf Iris are relatively easy bulbs to grow, suitable for an open, sunny location in a reasonably well-drained soil which dries out at least partially in the summer. Dwarf Iris are shorter than their cousins, the Dutch Iris, and also flower earlier. Both iris types share similar growing and planting recommendations

How to Grow Dwarf Iris Bulbs:

1. In the Fall, choose a spot that is mostly sunny or has only partial shade.

2. Planting Dwarf Iris bulbs is fairly simple. Bulbs look much like a small onion, with wiry roots growing out of one site and a spike on the other. Plant with the roots pointing down and the spike pointing up.

4. Follow the rule of thumb when planting bulbs and give the bulbs at least 2 times their height of soil above them. Dig a 3-4 inch hole, drop the bulb into it and cover with soil. 

5. Regarding the spacing between bulbs, if planting in beds, leave approx 3 inches between each bulb. If you are planting in containers, you can cluster them a little closer together. 

5. After planting, water well so that the soil above the bulbs settles.

6. Dwarf Iris bulbs will flower in the Spring. After the flowers die down, the plant can enjoy a warmer rest period. You don't have to water too much during this rest period. Leaves will also die back and at this point, you can choose to tidy up the plant and remove the old leaves or just let nature take its own course.
