Dwarf Bearded Iris Collection

Dwarf Bearded Iris Collection

A Perennial Favourite for Decades
Breeders started developing dwarf bearded irises in the 1930s. By the 1950s, interest in them had soared. Today, these star performers are still favourites among gardeners because of their early blooms, hardiness and carefree nature. Simply plant these pretty, petite perennials and then watch them flower and thrive for years to come!

Don't Sell These Early Bloomers Short
he plucky little beauties of this collection bloom at the first sign of warm spring weather, before their taller cousins. These vigorous perennials spread yearly to create generous displays in gardens, rockeries and even beneath trees.

Includes 1 each of Thunderegg, True Navy, Cat's Eye, Bitty Beauty, Coconino and Fuzzy Slippers

Thunderegg The flower's clean and neat colour pattern ensures a captivating focal point. It presents a striking contrast with medium yellow standards set against deep maroon falls, each accented with a medium yellow rim. Ideal for creating a vivid, fragrant display at the forefront of a border. Grows 7" tall.
True Navy This aromatic early bloomer beguiles with its deep navy blue hue, embodying the essence of a crisp, clear night sky. Its artfully curled, ruffled petals add an exquisite touch. An award- winning dwarf variety, it stuns in borders. Grows 12" tall.
Cat's Eye Compact clumps of rich rose-red blooms bear deep red centres on the falls. This multiple award winner will add exotic colour to pots, border fronts or sunny rockeries. Grows 15" tall.
Bitty Beauty The frilly white standards shine above the dark purple falls with white edging. Yellow beards and gold markings complete the look. Adds vibrancy to border fronts or mixed-bed plantings. Grows 8" tall.
Coconino Another amazing multiple-award winner. Cream- coloured standards rest atop yellow-orange, cream-tipped beards and blackened-mulberry falls with a light cream rim. Grows 13" tall.
Fuzzy Slippers Here's a wonderful choice for sunny front borders or as an accent planting alongside other seasonal perennials. No matter how you display it, the lush apricot-orange hue will draw all eyes to the site. Sweetly scented. Grows 6" tall.
