Description

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.

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

              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.

                    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.
