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.

        Can't wait to see them each year as they continue to mature and multiply. First time planting bulbs, and it was easy and fun.
