Tiger Irises Mixture

Iris hollandica

About:

Iris belong to their own family, Iridaceae, and are native to temperate regions of the northern hemisphere. There are more than 200 species, with great variation in growth habit, flower form and color. Our Tiger Irises Mixture consists of varieties of Dutch Iris. They grow from bulbs, and are hybrids of species from Spain and Morocco. Our mixture will bloom in shades of purple and bronze, with white and yellow highlights.

Planting:

Choose a well-draining area that gets full sun to part shade. Plant bulbs pointed end up, 4” deep and 3-4” apart. Water well. Mulch heavily in areas with cold winters, to provide protection from the freezing and thawing cycles.

Maintenance:

Provide moisture during the spring growing season. Dutch iris will go dormant after blooming. As with other spring- and summer-blooming bulbs, let the foliage die back on its own, allowing the plants to create energy for next year’s blooms. Planting among perennials will help hide the yellowing leaves.
