Dutch iris are one the most graceful flowers to bloom early in the spring. The flowers range from light blue, yellow, white and shades of purple. Dutch iris are grown from small bulbs, unlike bearded iris which are grown from rhizomes. These bulbs are easy to grow, perform well in rock gardens, great for naturalizing and make lovely cut flowers. For the best display of color and fragrance, plant in large numbers using all of the same variety or a mix.
Planting Dutch Iris
  1. Dutch Iris are typically planted in fall. They will form roots in fall and will bloom in early to mid-spring.
  2. Choose a planting location that has well drained soil and receives full to part sun.
  3. Dutch iris bulbs should be planted at a spacing of 3-6".
  4. Plant the dutch iris bulbs "pointed side up" at a depth of 2-3". Plant one bulb per hole or create a "bouquet effect" by digging a slightly larger hole and placing an odd number of bulbs in each.
  5. Thoroughly soak the planting area with water once all of the corms have been planted. Water as needed while the plant is growing and blooming.
  6. Enjoy the blooms in early spring and cut as desired for fresh arrangements - doing so will not negatively affect the plant or bulb.
  7. After the flowers have died, allow the foliage to yellow and die back. The leaves will continue to gather sunlight and make food for next year's blooms.
  8. Once the foliage has yellowed and dried, it may be removed by gently pulling it out of the soil. If the leaves do not easily pull away from the bulb, they are not ready to be removed. Your iris are now dormant and ready to "rest" until next year!
