The magnificent bearded Iris are one of our recommended plants of the week at Katie's Garden.
Especially good for cottage garden schemes and gravel gardens. Ideally plant in clumps of three or more. Heights roughly 1-2ft.
These sorts of Iris should be planted with the corms just above the soil's surface so they can soak up the sunshine. If you are very keen to do things properly, plant with the leafy growth 'behind' to make the corms south-facing!
