Plant of the Week

Reticulated Iris
Latin: Iris reticulata

Picture of Reticulated Iris flowers - purple in color with green stems.

 Dwarf or Reticulated Iris (Iris reticulata) produces small iris type flowers in purple or blue with yellow throats. These irises grow from bulbs instead of rhisomes like German Iris. The Reticulated Iris grows only five inches tall. Like most bulbs these plants prefer moist well drained soil and can tolerate full sun to part shade.
