Iris reticulata 'Cantab'

Archive entry 21.01.07

7th March 2006

A pretty pale blue flowered form that occurred as a chance seedling in E.A.Bowles garden in Enfield. The colour makes it one of the very few commercial cultivars of Iris reticulata that can be identified without doubt. It grows well in the garden, but I have a few in a large earthenware planter that flower and increase every year, and I do nothing. I don't water, or feed or fuss over. When the buds form, I move the pot to the front of the house for a month while I enjoy them. It doesn't get any easier than that!
