In this group you will find the smallest, miniature bearded irises growing up to 20 cm only. They usually bloom together with SDB irises, from late April to mid May.
They come from botanical forms of Iris pumila. Miniature dwarf irises love sunny habitats and free-draining soils, require no care. They are dry- and frost-resistant, ideal for rock garden plantings.
