Dwarf Iris

These little iris are only about 10 cm (4 in) tall but they don’t let a little cold and snow stop them from bursting!

These were blooming in a neighbour’s yard about 10 days ago. I was surprised to see them as despite appearances, I thought they only grew in the most southern parts of Canada.

Happy Thursday.

    1. I only know them as dwarf iris as they are so small (their full height is only about 10 cm or 4 inches). Siberian iris must be very hardy if they’re blooming in January, although Washington state doesn’t get the level of cold that we get here in the subarctic. I hadn’t heard of them before, so thanks for the introduction.

    1. Me too! We are definitely warming up though (we’re supposed to have between five and nine degrees this weekend) and between the doses of sun and rain, our giant snow piles are melting quickly.
