Iris reticulata ‘George’ has been my February favourite for years, so much so, I wanted to trial more of these delicate mini irises to blow away the gloom of that dire month. ‘Lady Beatrix Stanley’ stood out like a beacon, not so velvety as ‘George’ but beautiful and bright. Sweetly scented and perfect for small pots on the doorstep or a little table outside your window, to look on each day.
A warm site with good drainage is a must. Alternatively, force on a sunny windowsill to flower in late winter.
