Iris Reticulata are bulbs with early spring flowers that only reach about 4″ in height. These are not the tall flag-type irises that bloom later in the spring or early summer.

These Irises are available in a variety of colors but I love the bright blue ones. I grow them through my Candy Stripes phlox and the colors look great together.

Plant the bulbs in the fall to get blooms the next spring.

Unfortunately, the iris blooms don’t last very long, but they are so bright and beautiful that I have to have them in my spring garden.
