Iris histroides George is petunia violet in colour and is one of the earliest flowering of the iris. Very easy to grow, it is a hybrid of hist. major x J S Dijt. The bulbs are best planted in a well drained area and are also very good in containers. Easy to grow and very attractive in the garden. Iris are one of the first flowering bulbs in the spring and bring welcome splashes of colour in the winter garden. Grow in rockeries, borders or in pots and containers as they naturalise and come back year after year.
