The Dwarf Crested Iris is always the star performer in your rock garden, classic beds, or front borders. Additionally, it's a beauty that demands attention wherever it blooms, and it always exceeds any of your expectations. Awesome is the description for this rare goddess of flowers.

Dwarf Crested Iris Has Stunning Color Flowers

If a future flower display that grows more beautiful over time is your goal, then this six-inch-high perennial will make all your dreams come true. Shades of blue-violet or white two-inch-wide flowers bloom in orchidlike sprays of profusion on the plant. The falls exhibit fuzzy, yellow crests similar to the tall bearded type. Furthermore, the dense foliage gracefully frames the blossoms in narrow jade-green leaves.

The Dwarf Crested Iris Loves Rock Gardens

The early spring months of March, April, and May release an explosion of plant pastels that can be used to paint any landscape. Rocky slopes and shade-dappled woodlands, bluffs, road banks, and various habitats in zones 5 to 7 are welcome spots for the plant.

Acidic, loose, loamy soil provides the foundation for a proliferation of flowers. Add rich compost into the amended, well-drained ground to promote an excellent head start. Just like the planting instructions for the tall bearded iris, this one also requires partial exposure of the rhizome to light. If you cover all of this root, it delays bloom time until this part performs a miracle of nature and works the rhizome up and into the light. Extra care in the first planting stages helps to ensure a mass of bloom.

Deer's Don't Like The Dwarf Crested Iris

A vigorous deer-resistant, low-grower, it provides a tightly-woven root system that locks soil in place to combat erosion. Moreover, the blossom fragrance is sweet enough to use in aromatherapy calming lotions and essential oils to enhance a relaxed, healing atmosphere anywhere and anytime.

Enjoy a show of iridescent hummingbirds and golden butterflies as they nestle among the blossoms, sipping the natural nectar. Making a decision to include Dwarf Crested Iris for native birds further activates your landscape and brings it to life with changing colors and movement.
