The Dwarf Iris 'Katherine Hodgkin', 'Iris reticulata', a fall planted bulb, is a dainty dwarf iris which originally came from such areas as Turkey and the Caucasus. The incredible new triple coloration of the flower makes this a truly unique dwarf iris with pale blue and yellow tones. These Irises are cultivated on a fairly large scale. The slightly fragrant flower is relatively large and the flower color ranges from pale blue to violet-purple. Katherine Hodgkin blooms very early in the spring. They are easy grow and they will come back year after year. If planted in good location, they will even multiply. They are good for rock gardens, under shrubs and trees, in beds, borders, and containers and for indoor forcing. They need a well drained soil.

Easy to Grow Review by Bridget B
Very nice Iris!
Love this iris Review by Katherine Hodgkin dwarf iris
This is my first year to have blooms of this dwarf iris. I was so delighted when I walked out to water its area and found it in full bloom. I don't know how many bulbs I planted, but I counted 20 blooms, shoulder to shoulder filling a 9 inch circle. They weren't over 3 inches tall. I hope it is true they multiply; other dwarf iris I have had seemed to dwindle away after 4 years or fewer. I will definitely buy more to be sure I have them blooming next year.
