Modern day Canadian plant sleuth & hybridizer, Alan McMurtrie from Toronto, Ontario has travelled extensively in search of discovering lost varieties of Iris reticulata. His adventures abroad have led himto hybridizing some of the most beautiful new dwarf irises we've ever seen. We're proud to carry a few of his special introductions and we're sure that you too will become a fan!
Scent Sational certainly lives up to its name with its highly fragrant blooms. Its blooms are a wonderful shade of violet-blue, the falls displaying the typical markings of reticulata iris with yellow and white. Belonging to the Reticulata group of irises, danfordiae is characterized by its short stature, large flower in relationship to the plant as a whole and very early flowering.
They are very hardy little plants. Mix them in amongst other traditional early bloomers such as crocus, winter aconites and snowdrops.
