Reticulata irises have a fibrous net surrounding the bulb. They are small plants to 6″, with tubular, sharply-pointed, ribbed leaves, and flowers of yellow, blue or purple with an orange blaze on the falls, appearing in early spring.
Iris ‘Harmony’ is a hybrid between I. histrioides and I. reticulata. It is a small, extremely early flowering (mid January for us), fragrant iris. The intensity of the color is a startling deep blue with yellow blotch with a white fan around it. Iris reticulata is cold hardy and easy to naturalize. They are the perfect companion for crocus and galanthus in wooded areas, on the lawn or along the border of the flower bed.
