combining Lavender and Iris barbata-nana?
I have reached a point, where almost every corner of my small allotment is used/ planted.
There is a small area though, around a young dwarf cherry tree, where I could add some low growing stuff.
I am ogleing cultivars of Lavandula angustifolia and thought of planting different sized ones just to see whether there is much of a difference in 3 years time.
And I always wanted to have a go at short Iris barbata. There is an alley tree in our street that has a clump of Irirs barbata growing at its base, living on neglect and dog pee for years.
So I wondered, If I combined those two how that could work. I would clipp the Lavender back in spring, and hoped that the Iris flower till it grows back. I thoght of 3-5 Lavender and a couple of Iris.
Soil is somewhat heavy, but quite good, on top of a low mound, full sun / dappled shade and rather dry in summer.
What do you reckon? Thanks, bye, Lin
