Iris reticulata 'Katharine's Gold' is one of Pam's Faves this season...this is what she has to say:
There's something so very intriguing about these flowers. The flowerheads are large even though they're dwarf irises. They have a real 'Hey! Look at me' factor. Plant them in a container and maybe even raise it up a bit so that you can enjoy and admire the intricate colouring of these beauties.
Here's another beautiful Iris called Katharine. Pair 'Katharine's Gold' with 'Katharine Hodgkin' for an amazing display.
Belonging to the Reticulata group of irises, 'Katharine's Gold' 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.
