Diminuative Harbingers of Spring.
At just 2"-8" tall these tiny treasures are the earliest of the bearded iris to bloom. In our fields they usually start blooming in late March or early April. Miniature dwarfs thrive in a climate with a definite cold season and are best enjoyed in a rock garden or elevated planting. You'll want to make it easy to sniff their dainty blossoms - most are very fragrant!
Versatile & Vigorous.
These gems of the Spring garden bloom later than Miniature Dwarf and earlier than Intermediate or Tall Bearded. They stand 8"- 15" tall. SDBs will form clumps that provide you with wonderful mounds of color and nice cushions of spiky leaves.
Tried and True - Old and New Most of the iris in our main listing are Tall Bearded, with stalks over 28" tall and as high as 40" (there are some Border Bearded (BB) that are 16'-28" tall). Their time of bloom ranges from mid-April in the southern states to late June in the far north and high elevations. Most varieties bloom once a year in the spring, although some will rebloom in the summer and fall in warm climates.
Our newest cat, Trout, came to us from Uzbekistan. No, she didn't walk all the way but came thanks to the Peace Corps and our neighbor. Trout, with her wide experience in the world, is content to stay put and help with selecting a wonderful collection of Standard Dwarf Bearded irises. She is short of stature and hardy, like these shorter beauties. She promises to give you a world class value for your money.
