Dwarf Bearded Iris Collection Description

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!


This collection includes one each of the following varieties:
  • Ultimate:Medium yellow standards contrast beautifully with mahogany falls, which sport a few golden rays on the haft. This multiple award winner exudes a light, spicy fragrance. Grows 13" tall.
