Dutch Iris bulbs send up their flower spikes in mid summer, following on from the bearded irises their later flowering times extend the iris season. Dutch Irises grow from bulbs; the plants have slender leaves and their strong stems support dainty iris flowers; the colours are subtle but striking and they’ll add a contrast of shape and colour in beds and borders. These summer flowering iris bulbs are also excellent for cutting.

Plant Dutch Iris bulbs in September-October, Plant the bulbs around 2-3 times their depth, into free draining soil. Avoid planting bulbs in soil that gets waterlogged; on heavy soils add grit to the planting hole to prevent bulbs rotting.
Plant Dutch Iris bulbs in containers of bulb compost or gritty free draining compost. Plant the bulbs around 2-3 times their depth.
After care Let the leaves die down naturally and don’t be tempted to cut them back early. The foliage needs to absorb energy back to the bulb to ensure next years flowers.
