Iris reticulata 'Sea Breeze' is a striking, hardy dwarf cultivar with royal blue, white and yellow flowers.
'Sea Breeze' has dramatic white, royal blue and yellow flowers with blue speckling. It is the work of Alan McMurtrie, a Toronto breeder, who is creating colourful and striking new forms of Iris reticulata, a species that is sweetly fragrant with large flowers in relation to the size of the plant. These hardy dwarf Iris prefer full sun in a position that is well-drained. They will go dormant by summer so plant them where they can grow up through perennial groundcovers.
