The delicate dwarf iris is already glowing in the garden at the end of February
And our fifth favorite is the dwarf iris, also known as net iris. It impresses us with its purple-blue flowers that exude delicacy and charm. The dwarf Iris could still please your eyes and soul from mid-February, because in the mild winter it shows its head out of the earth in late winter and announces the coming spring soon. This bulb flower is quite demanding, because it needs nutrient-rich, calcareous and well-drained soil that stays dry in summer. Annual fertilization is also desirable. For this delicate garden beauty, choose a sunny to partially shaded place outside that is lit by the morning sun. After the spring bloom, you need to wait and remove the withered leaves. Only then can you remove these bulbous flowers. Only later can you divide the bulbs and keep them until the next planting in late summer. A practical tip from us. It is better to use gloves whenever handling the beautiful dwarf Iris, as it could cause skin irritation and other allergic reactions.
Hyacinth the sophisticated beauty for home and garden
Among the early bloomers there is another sophisticated beauty that surprises us not only with its delicate colors, but also with a stunningly beautiful scent before the beginning of spring. The hyacinth comes in gorgeous colors that range from white to pink and blue to purple. If you want to have the fragrant spring flowers in the garden or in a pot at home, you have to put the bulbs in soil in autumn, between October and November. The golden rule applies here again: the planting depth should be twice as deep as the diameter of the flower bulbs. The hyacinth likes a lot of sun, it prefers a sunny location as possible. Its flowers can grow up to 40 cm high and spread a specific, very delicate scent through the air. You can water moderately during the growth and flowering period. Be careful when doing this, because these flowers cannot tolerate waterlogging. After the flowering phase, you can continue watering until the hyacinth leaves turn yellow.
