The Deer Resistant Beauties Bulb Collection pairs two stunning Dutch Iris varieties for an elegant early summer performance. With light blue standards (upper petals) and yellow falls (lower petals), the exquisite 'Oriental Beauty' provides a gentle compliment to the vibrant blue-violet flowers of 'Sapphire Beauty'. While deer avoid Irises, those lovely lower petals serve as a landing pad for bees. Collection of 35 bulbs. (Iris hollandica)

Our Deer Resistant Beauties Bulb Collection combines two florist favorites for a planting that serves double duty, adorning gardens and vases. Each variety is remarkable on its own, yet they harmonize well. The falls of 'Sapphire Beauty' are marked with a bright yellow flame that echoes the golden yellow falls of 'Oriental Beauty', while the blue tones share tints and shades of a single hue. Tuck these beauties among perennials in sunny borders and beds for fuss-free color. Plants are hardy in zones 5 to 10 and establish best in locations where soil is warm and dry during the summer months when plants go dormant. In locations with wet summers, bulbs can be dug and stored after the foliage begins to die back. Store in a cool, dark place and replant in fall when you plant tulips and other bulbs. Provide adequate moisture during the blooming season.

Deer Resistant Beauties Bulb Collection will fill roughly 3 sq ft if planted together and contains 35 bulbs:

20 x 'Sapphire Beauty' Dutch Iris
15 x 'Oriental Beauty' Dutch Iris
