Katherine’s Gold is a recently available sport from the pale gray-blue old favorite, Katharine Hodgkin. This lovely new jewel grows 4” tall and has soft yellow and white flowers, with attractive indigo markings on the falls. Katharine’s Gold was awarded a garden merit by the RHS because it is so reliable and easy to establish in the garden. Flowering soon after the snowdrops (often in February or early March), botanical iris quickly develop into gorgeous, densely floriferous clumps and excel in the rock garden or perennial bed. Plant in part to full sun, in well-drained soil. Planting in very hot locations will shorten the duration of bloom. In heavier soil, add expanded shale to improve drainage. Cold hardy to Zone 5.
