J.S. Dijt has velvet purple/red flowers and is another popular variety for pots and rockeries.
Iris reticulata are originally from Iran and the Caucasus. It is now a popular miniature iris for rock gardens and pots. In colder climates, when planted in a well-drained sunny position, the bulbs can be left in the ground to naturalise. Iris reticulata grow to between 8cm and 18cm.
