The Danford Iris (Iris Danfordiae) produces beautiful bright yellow flowers with a sweet fragrance, complete with small black or brown spots on the lower petals.
These flowers bloom early spring, with grass-like leaves that elongate after the flowers have died back, and then disappear by late spring once the plant has gone dormant. These flowers are great at naturalising so will form clumps of primrose-yellow flowers.
This eye-catching area of golden yellow flowers will brighten the shorter days in early spring. Plant them at the front of a sun-trapped border, or in a container for a fabulous spring display.
