- The delicate dwarf Iris shines in the garden at the end of February
And our fifth favorite is the dwarf Iris, also known as Netziris. She captivates us with her violet blue flowers that exude subtlety and charm. The dwarf iris could delight your eyes and soul from the middle of February, because during the mild winter it still shows its head out of the ground in late winter and announces the coming spring. This onion flower is quite demanding, because it needs a nutrient-rich, calcareous and well-drained soil that stays dry in the summer. An annual fertilization is also desired. For this delicate garden beauty, choose a sunny to partially shaded spot outside, illuminated by the morning sun. After the spring bloom you have to wait and remove the withered leaves. Only then can you remove these bulbs. Only later can you divide the onions and keep them until the next planting in late summer. A practical tip from us. When dealing with the beautiful dwarf iris, it is better to use gloves as it may cause skin irritation and other allergic reactions.
- Hyacinth the sophisticated beauty for home and garden
Among the spring bloomers, there is still a sophisticated beauty that surprises us not only with its delicate colors, but also with a stunningly beautiful fragrance before the beginning of spring. The hyacinth comes in gorgeous colors, ranging from white to pink and blue to purple. If you want to have the fragrant spring flowers in the garden or in the pot at home, you must put the onions in the autumn, between October and November, in soil. Here again the golden rule applies: 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 as possible location. Its flowers can grow up to 40 cm high and spread a specific, very delicate fragrance through the air. In the growing and flowering period, you can water moderately. Be careful, because these flowers can not tolerate waterlogging. After the flowering period, you can continue to pour until the hyacinth leaves turn yellow. Only then can you cut them off. Then comes the rest period for these beautiful spring flowers.
