First Iris

First Iris (Iris reticulata (Iris))

Picked the bulbs up from Wilko last September, 99p for a bundle - run out of space and ended up popping the leftovers in any old pot. This is with a fuchsia and is actually the first to flower. I thought I may have to wait a few years for flowers?

Nice colour, Weatherwise. Iris reticulata does flower in its first winter/spring after planting. I hope the others bloom for you soon.

Thanks David. Its a very dark purple, need to take another snap to get the pattern inside but only had about 30 seconds during my lunch break(!) - thought I better get this pic on the mobile phone (so not the best) while the flower was out. I think the others will flower soon. Good old Wilko!
