This very early spring-blooming, fragrant reticulata-type dwarf iris features bluebird-blue standards and royal blue falls with a white-edged yellow blotch. The triangular-shaped leaves elongate after flowering to 12 inches in length and go dormant near midsummer. Over time, each bulb will produce offsets resulting in showy clumps with dozens of flowers.
This cultivar was created when Iris reticulata was hybridized with Iris histrioides var. major and has received the Award of Merit and a First Class Certificate from the Dutch Royal Bulb Growers Association.
