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.

        Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Sapphire Beauty:

        Planted these in a good spot, but they haven't appeared yet. Am about to dig around and see if the rhizomes/bulbs are still there. We do have squirrels and voles, so maybe the pests got to them.

                    My grass is taller than these sprouts. Very weak and limited growth. No hope of blooming.

                      Easy to plant, then wait for them to bloom. They are just as pretty as I remember growing up.
