Dutch Irises are the elegant ones you always see in fabulous spring flower arrangements. They're just as elegant in your garden, with tall, stately stems and exquisite flowers in a range of colors.

Not to be confused with the even larger bearded or German iris that bloom in late spring, these beauties are early spring flowers, and the bulbs are planted in fall just like daffodils and tulips.

      Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Oriental Beauty:

      I have one lonely blade. Not sure if it is your iris or if it is volunteer. Maybe I planted it too shallow, maybe because of sparse rainfall or poor soil.

      Are the zones correct?

      Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Oriental Beauty:

      I think the zones might be too generous. We're in zone 10 and got 2 flowers this year, maybe 5 last year.

      Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Oriental Beauty:

      Very disappointed to find they are not the color I ordered
      (Dutch Iris Oriental Beauty). I received very dark blue ones. They are large, vigorous plants with lots of blooms, but I'm gonna rip them out anyway because I really dislike them. I'm glad they were guaranteed, and hopefully their replacement will be as nice a quality.

      Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Oriental Beauty:

      This was my first time planting bulbs and I was amazed when they all came up and looked so beautiful. Did find it a bit difficult to know which was the "top" and which was the "bottom" of the bulb when planting, but I must have made the right choice.

      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
