Pauline is a beautiful, intense purple, almost black, with white bands on its falls, early flowering dwarf Iris. This flower appears in February and March. Plant in a sunny to partially sunny area, and well in sight because they are blooming when there is not much else happening. They can be planted in well drained soil in borders, gardens, rock or gravel gardens, or pots on the patio or balcony. Suitable for naturalising.
