Mini Iris

I have lived in my home here for over 10 yrs and these little Iris's have been here. The previous owner loved Iris's and they are everywhere, so I assume she planted these. 

 Now in the time I have been here they have never bloomed but for some reason they did this year  and they are beautiful.
Now to look at the first picture you would think that they are just an average iris but pictures can be misleading. So I went in the house and retrieved a yard stick.
Now you can see how small they are.


That's right, only 5 inches tall anf that is with the bloom.With just the leaf blades they are 4 inches.

I am so pleased with them but the area they are growing in is a spot I want to redo this spring. The thought of digging them up is scaring me. I do not want to lose them and the best time for me to of transplant them would of been a couple of months ago. I had not given them a thought then.


I'm going to have to give this some serious consideration.
But for now I am just going to enjoy their beauty.
Till next time

UPDATE :  I woke up this morning and must of been dreaming about my Iris's and I thought came to me, you know those DUH moments. I Google everything and  didn't I Google this last night. Tired I guess but I found a good info site on dwarf Iris's. If you are interested here is the link to the plant expert. And this link to another site

  2. They are beautiful!
    I've never grown miniatures - only full size iris plants.
    You could dig them up and plant them in a spot that gets heavy shade, then wait for the appropriate season to transplant them to a permanent bed!

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
