Iris x hollandica 'Montecito'

Lemon meringue pie is one of my favourite puddings and it makes a great colour combination, brilliant lemon yellow, so good against pure white. These go in pride of place running down the centre of our late May eating table.

Care Tips

Water in well after planting. Old flower stems and any dying foliage can be cut back in autumn. Apply a mulch of garden compost or well-rotted manure in spring. Caution: harmful if eaten.
