    Comments about American Meadows Specie Iris Bulbs Mix:

    I planted these in the fall as per directions as a border for my daffodils; the two flowers complement each other beautifully. These irises really do bloom early, even after one of the hardest Buffalo winters to date!

    My only complaint is that I had absolutely no yellow blooms. I had three shades of blue to purple, but no yellow. I am unsure if the bulbs with yellow blooms would have died, or if it's not guaranteed to have yellow in the mix? I did not find information related to this in the product information or other reviews.

      Comments about American Meadows Specie Iris Bulbs Mix:

      I planted these in fall 2013 and was so pleased to have flowers in March! They brightened up my walkway and my daughter loved that they were tiny irises, just her size. She helped me plant them and was quite pleased with her handiwork.

        Comments about American Meadows Specie Iris Bulbs Mix:

        These plants are the first things to bloom in my spring garden, beating out my crocuses by well over a week. The only ones I didn't see return in the second year were the yellows, but the blue and purple ones more than made up for the lack. Lovely colors, winter hardy, ridiculously early blooms and easy naturalizers; what could be better?

            These came up bright and early in spring, just when I was beginning to think winter would never end. These delivered a promise of spring in February. They faded just as the daffodils started to open up.

              The dwarf iris were a snap to plant in fall, hardy enough to survive a zone 3 winter (-30 degrees) and the first flowers to greet me this spring. I will be back for more!

                Planted these in an area where I haven't had much success getting anything to grow well. The irises came up before anything else. I should have gotten more for a better burst of color.

                  I planted the dwarf iris near the walk to the garage so i could see them every time I went to the garage. There's a carpet of color. I think every one of the bulbs rebloomed this spring. I love bulbs that come back each year.

                    The first to come up are competing with the crocus and daffodils. Color at different times give long lasting enjoyment.
