A lovely plant in flower in March is Iris
unguicularis. This used to be known as Iris stylosa, but that was too easy, so the boffins decided to call it Iris unguicularis, just to confuse us mere
mortals!! It is an evergreen low growing Iris with narrow leathery strap-shaped leaves. It grows to around 1 foot tall, and enjoys full sun. The flowers always
come as a surprise to me, as it seems as though one day there's no sign of them and the next day there they are in full bloom!
