    This site claims late winter early spring so perhaps it's normal . I have some Iris Katherine Hodgkin, they are dwarf too, they are well developed but don't look close to flowering.

    I've seen plenty of daffs and crocus flowering in gardens around here already which is rather early too

  • My irises opened the first week of February last year...they only have green leaves currently. That one clearly has a mind of its own!

    Some of ours are in flower already so no, not early.

    Still a welcome site tho as this is their 3rd year in the ground and in big pots under shrubs.  Never got them to come back in my Belgian garden.

    I've got retiulata in flower from bulbs which flowered last year. I know THEY say they don't do well in the second year, but I just didn't get round to empyting/ re-using the pots.

    Some of mine are in flower - a very welcome sight, especially the ones returning from last year. I also found yesterday a beautiful Algerian Iris in flower in the back garden which I'm chuffed about.
