12 April 2010

Bulbous irises are the first to blossom in the Iridarium. Iridodictyum reticulatum and I. Danfordiae started blossoming by April, 12, the Day of Outer Space. In situ small-bulbous irises grow in mountains and foothills of the Caucasus and Asia. All the species are very decorative and suit well for Alpine gardens and as pot forces. Most of species are rather frost resistance. I. Winogradowii grows well ex situ and can blossom and bear fruit in one location for more than 20 years. I. Danfordiae blossoms for 3 years and then stops. I. reticulatum is represented by an abundant range of sorts.
