Iris ‘Petite Polka’


Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.285.940


Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris are much shorter than the Tall Bearded types, but equally as colourful and beautiful in the border. Plants form a clump of green sword-shaped leaves, blooming in mid-spring. This selection has fragrant flowers with a white centre and beard that are broadly edged in lavender. Choose a sunny position, with a well-drained, loamy soil. Bearded Iris are heavy feeders, so plan to fertilize in early spring, and again in late summer. Plants should be divided every 3 to 4 years, in August. Be on the watch for Iris borer. Excellent for cutting. Dwarf bearded Iris are also often described as I. pumila. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
