Iris Katharine Hodgkin is an utterly distinct hybrid predominantly yellow with blue and sea-green veining and markings. They are Middle Eastern in origin and do best in sunny well drained conditions where this cultivar will increase.
Iris Katharine Hodgkin bulbs should be planted 5" deep in well-drained, rich peaty soil in full sun and probably best in a raised bed. 15 bulbs will nicely fill a 9" pot. Top dress the soil with grit so the flowers are not splashed with dirt in the rain.
