    Comments about American Meadows Wild Iris Katharine Hodgkin - Bag of 20:

    These irises were beautiful and popped up very early in the Spring. Because I had never planted these, I assumed they were the same height as other irises even though the description clear says otherwise, oops! Regardless, these little guys were cute, though I need to find another place to move them for next year so they can be on full display.

      Comments about American Meadows Wild Iris Katharine Hodgkin - Bag of 20:

      These just bloomed in our garden here in Vermont (end of March). They are so beautiful and such a nice burst of color during a time when nothing else is in bloom. They're holding their own pretty well out there even with our very low nighttime temperatures! Would definitely buy more of these little irises.
