‘Tickety Boo’ is a dwarf bearded iris with dusty rose to antique white petals and violet-blue beards.
‘Tickety Boo' is a dwarf iris offering subtle and sophisticated colours. Dusty rose to antique white to palest yellow standards and falls make a stunning contrast with its vibrant, violet-blue beards. The standard dwarf bearded iris (SDB) are hybrids involving Iris pumila and other species and hybrids. They look like the classic tall bearded iris but in miniature and often with the flowers near the top of the bluish straplike leaves. Use them at the front of the border, along pathways, and in rockeries in full sun in average to dry situations. Divide every two to three years (or when clumps become congested and flowering decreases) just after blooming. Trim the foliage back to a third and plant the rhizomes at or just below soil level. Deer and rabbit resistant.
