Breathtaking Beauty on a Compact Form

As hypnotic as staring a tiger in the eye!
This Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris will charm you! The bloom is a striking mixture of mauve and burgundy, and produces an intriguing, spicy fragrance. This hybrid of 'Snugglebug' and 'Buddy Boy' brings bloom beauty to the next level with its dazzling array of colors: the standards and style arms are a mauve rose, while the eyes on the falls are dark red with black texture and veining edged by a wide mauve rose band. The beards are old gold on a violet base. The overall effect is breathtaking!

'Cat's Eye' is an Iris Pumila variety from renowned grower Paul Black. Iris Pumila is a fragrant, deer resistant, and butterfly-attracting species of the Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris. The gray-green foliage grows in compact clumps 10 to 14 inches wide and 12 to 18 inches high. The leaves grow in an attractive sword-like form. Expect this award-winner to bloom from early to mid spring.

Plant this Dwarf Iris in full sun, spaced 12 to 15 inches apart. This plant will tolerate soil that is dry, moist, sandy, slightly acidic, or slightly alkaline, so long as it is well drained. Zones 3 to 8.
