Our Master Gardeners Suggest Pairing With:
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 Excelsior:

I waited breathlessly for weeks, then--Wham!--suddenly there were flower spikes almost overnight and then blooms! But the downside here is that they lasted barely a week. Next time I'll plant these for cut flowers rather than as part of a perennial plan.

    Comments about American Meadows Dutch Iris Bulbs Excelsior:

    We lost an oak tree to sudden oak death and I planted about 300 bulbs on the hillside that the oak once shaded. Just as the bulbs were starting to bloom my former 'gardening' service weed wacked the hillside, cut all the buds off with the exception of a group of Dutch Iris White Excelsior that were off to the side and had already started to bloom. I have now fired the yard service (I can't call them gardeners) and am hoping that the bulbs will grow and bloom next year.
