Dutch Iris Collection - Iris rhizomes
Dutch Iris rhizomes 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 rhizomes; 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.
Our collection includes one each of:
Iris ‘Black Beauty’ x24
This striking Dutch Iris has dark flowers with subtle markings.
Iris ‘Bronze Beauty’ x48
A sophisticated, dusky, bronze-yellow Dutch Iris.
Iris ‘Gipsy Beauty’ x48
One of the showiest Dutch irises with intricately marked petals.
Plant Dutch Iris rhizomes 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 rhizomes in containers of bulb compost or gritty free draining compost. Plant the bulbs around 2-3 times their depth.
