Product Description

A gorgeous dwarf Blue Flag Iris thats currently bang on trend in gardens and perfect for a low maintenance and natural look.

At only 30cm (12in) tall, it's compact and perfectly formed and will look after itself, and needs no pruning or dividing for many years. Very hardy and easy, so perfect for even the most inexperienced of gardeners, or for those who really don't have time for fussy maintenance.

Also known as the Bristle Pointed Beachhead Iris, it's fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience.
You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

A great choice as an edging plant where its grassy leaves form a compact tuft and won’t make a nuisance of itself, the lavender-blue flowers of Iris setosa have lighter veining which really make the flowers stand out.

Supplied as a pack of 6 jumbo plug plants, you can dot them around, or plant 30cm (12in) apart to form a river or drift of porcelain blue in May and June.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Iris setosa:

  • When potting on, handle plugs carefully. Pot on using our 9cm pots in Shuttle Trays, using good multi-purpose compost.
  • Give your plants a good water initially, then only when the top compost starts to dry. They don’t like to be left in standing water.
  • Plant approx. 20cm (8in) apart to allow them room to grow.
  • Feed using a high-potash feed such as Blooming Fast Superior Soluble Fertiliser for Flowers & Fruits, to encourage flowering.
  • Dead head when flowers fade to encourage more flowers.
  • Alternatively, plant straight out where they are to flower in full sun or light shade in moist, well-draining soil in full sun or part shade.


Aftercare advice for your Iris:

  • Keep plants well-watered but avoid letting them sit in water.
  • Plants are hardy to around -15°C so there's no need to mulch in winter.
  • Apply a general-purpose feed in early spring.


 

Pruning Advice for Iris setosa:

  • Remove any dying foliage in autumn, old flower stems can be cut down after flowering.
