Plant this gorgeous dark-blue Iris with other Specie Iris for a wonderful array of color in the early spring. Iris reticulata is famous for big flowers on tiny plants, standing only about 4 to 6 high. The variety 'Joyce' is the most famous sky blue cultivar of the species. They are super winter-hardy, and dependably perennial, so are the perfect dwarf iris for a wildflower or rock garden planting. These little wild irises are the true harbingers of spring. All wild gardens should include them.
