Flowers in the winter...

Iris unguicularis is native to the Mediterranean basin and is commonly known as the Algerian iris. We love it for its simple, fragrant, lavender-blue winter flowers, which appear from November through to March.

Grow in the sun in poor soil, which is well-drained and neutral to alkaline. It is very effective in a gravel garden combined with Sedum, Nepeta or lavender.

Plant in a warm spot, but which is well sheltered in the winter, for instance, at the base of a wall. In the summer the rhizomes will mature and in the winter its delicate flowers will be protected from cold winds.

And a final thing! Remember to cut back the foliage in the autumn before the floral stems appear. This will produce a better effect.
