Very nice small irises. Do you grow them only in pots or can they be grown in the ground, too?

both needs very good drainage in my loamy soil.
pumila doesn't grow well in my garden, the clumps reduce of size year after year, this opposite as the ones grown in the greenhouse.
lutescens is less demanding, i've a lot of forms growing outside but those under glass are protected from slugs attacks and have better colors. In the wild they withstand heavy winter rains for 5-7 weeks but they grow in very rocky lands.

Yes, slugs is a real problem for the flower. I always have to wait the full blooming of my patch to see some flowers because, at the beginning, all are eaten....

This is Iris attica which flowers at around this time each year. It likes to get a completely dry summer period in sunshine. Many leaves die back and you think it's too hard.... but the plant appreciates it. Mine is in a rather chunky, rocky mix.

I would love a bicolor version of this (and are there hybrids with Onco group and this species?) but the yellow is very nice too, and I like the neat leaf habit.

This presentation, from Tom Waters, given to the Santa Fe Iris Society in February 2020, presents the miniature dwarf bearded (MDB) irises and groups them into three types according to parentage.

Iris pumila, raised from seed collected in the Kecske-Hegy Mts, Hungary. Very diminutive. About 7 cm in height.

What a myriad of gorgeous little Iris' - they're also among my favourite plants.

Iris attica (one that Yann might recognize  ;D ;D)

Iris attica RRW (photos 2 and 3) with a dark silky fall and a nicely contrasting pale blue beard.

Iris pumila atroviolacea

Iris taurica which had its flowers batterd by cold and strong Northeast winds earlier this week
