Iris reticulata 'Harmony'
Transcaucausis and Iran growing on scree from 1800 ft.(600m) to 8000 ft. (2700m)
Height 4 to 5 in. (10- 12.5cm)
Early February in Zone 9. February-March elsewhere. Flowers are 2 1/2 inches (5-6 cm.)wide, clear pale blue.
Will survive in zones 3-4 with mulch, 5-9 without mulch. Requires a warm, cool, warm growing cycle.
Rockeries, edges of beds, containers in full sun in well drained soil. Needs moisture during the growing season but will tolerate summer drought. It is also fairly easy to force for early indoor bloom (as early as Christmas).
Iris reticulata 'Harmony' is an easy to grow dwarf iris, with a gentle fragrance, which likes full sun and moisture in early spring. It will survive very dry summers making it a good candidate for rockeries. Unlike the miniature danfordae iris, it will colonize and increase in the garden year after year if left undisturbed.
