5" tall x 2" wide. Katharine Hodgkin Dwarf Iris
brightens the late winter to early spring garden with delicate blue flowers.
Plant these low-growing blooms in a sunny to part-shade location along a
woodland edge, in a rock garden, along the edge of a path, or in a container
where you can enjoy the artistic details up close. Katharine Hodgkin is lovely
planted with other dwarf iris and snow crocus. Plant in groups of at least 20
bulbs for best results. Not fussy, plant 4" deep and 3" apart in
average well-drained soil. Keep the soil relatively dry during summer. The grass-like foliage will continue to grow
as the flower fades but will disappear by late spring as the bulb goes dormant.
Drought-tolerant, and deer-and-squirrel-resistant too.
