    Recently introduced and still quite hard to find, this mid blue iris has splashes of yellow on each fall. Gardening 'Which' Magazine carried out a trial on this plant and they recommend it to their readers, as it is a strong grower with intensely coloured flowers. Plant in clusters at the front of the border, or pot it up and keep it on the patio.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs 5cm deep in the autumn in a sunny spot in well-drained soil. Water moderately while they are actively growing and keep reasonably dry during their dormant period.
