There’s something otherworldly about irises. With their sumptuous, velvety petals and moreish scent, they’re exquisitely beautiful in their own special way. Available in countless hues, their petals often have graceful, vein-like patterns and artistic splashes of contrasting colour. Different varieties flower throughout the year, in winter, spring and summer, so with forward-planning you can enjoy irises from February to April. Miniature iris bulbs are ideal for pots, rockeries, alpine troughs and the front of borders. Bearded irises have adorable tufts on their lower petals and bold, vivacious flowers on tall stems. These pollinator-friendly perennials come back every year, making iris bulbs a good investment, as they won’t need replacing as often as some other varieties.
