DUTCH IRIS MONTECITO

 DUTCH IRIS MONTECITO

The name ‘iris’ is Greek for ‘rainbow’. And a very apt name it is since irises come in every colour of the rainbow. Besides the literal meaning of the word ‘iris’, Iris is also a character from Greek mythology. The enchanting Iris belongs to the Iris family and was first mentioned around 1500 BC. This charismatic flower has three petals. As it opens slowly but surely, you can you look straight into its heart. The natural beauty of irises adds a beguiling element to a garden, and their colours are bright and expressive. In addition to their various blues, irises are also available in yellow, lilac, purple, brown and white. Some even sport two colours. Bulbing irises are classified into two groups: the large-flowering and the small-flowering irises. Large-flowering irises grow to a height of 50 to 70 centimetres and produce flowers in May and June. The small-flowering irises are also known as dwarf irises. These produce small flowers with intricate markings, grow to only 15 centimetres in height, and bloom in February and March.
