Iris Hollandica 'Katherine Hodgkin'

4 Stars 1 product review

Out of Stock


Product Description

With its unusual pale blue and yellow colouring, this charming dwarf iris really stands out from the crowd. Find it flowering this month in the Wild Garden, and around the Rock Garden where it’s easy to find beneath the old, bonsai’d larch tree.

A dwarf variety, flowers in February, fragrant, named forthe wife of painter Howard Hodgkin.

This very vigorous and resilient Reticulata bulbous iris produces delicately marked pale blue and yellow flowers in late winter, and looks good with dwarf daffodils, crocus, and anemones.

Although easy to grow, the bulbs increase more rapidly in a cold frame or bulb frame than outdoors.

This iris was introduced in 1958 and named after the wife of Eliot Hodgkin, a grower of rare bulbs.
