The flowers of the iris family may be fleeting but they are also some of the most irresistibly beautiful the plant world has to offer. The miniature irises, which present themselves when winter is barely at a close, must be doubly treasured. We include a wide selection here, including some of the new introductions made by Canadian breeder, Alan McMurtrie, which present real breakthroughs in reticulata breeding.. We expect to add more of Alan's amazing hybrids to our range shortly. These little jewels may look delicate but give them a sunny, sheltered spot, where the soil dries out a little for their summer resting period, and they will richly reward you. A few other irises which we find gardenworthy are also included here.
