1874, Iris iberica by Jay Aye

The Gardeners' Chronicle p.673, May 23, 1874

Iris iberica. — Is this a difficult plant to cultivate? This season I have purchased about a dozen roots at various times, some in a growing state in pots, and others just starting into growth. Some of these I at once planted out, the remainder I have kept in the cold frame. I am sorry to say I have failed with the whole lot. I have not at the present a single healthy plant, and at least two-thirds have said "good-bye " to me. What is the secret of growing it successfully ? Jay Aye.
