One of our favourite beauties - deep purple standards and mahogany gold falls. A big impact bloomer, which flowers fairly late in the season.

The Dutch Iris Red Ember is a fiery and passionate flower that is sure to set your garden ablaze! With its smoky purple-red blooms that are lightly kissed with copper and have contrasting yellow blotches- a hot favourite.

Dutch Iris are much valued as a cut flower, and they bloom after most Daffodils and Tulips have finished, making them the perfect addition to your Spring garden. They are very hardy, and each bulb will produce 1 to 2 spikes, with 1-2 flowers per stem.
Dutch Iris prefer a sunny, well drained position, planted 6-8cm deep and 12-15cm apart, in well prepared soil.
Add garden fertilizer when needed, and spray occasionally with Fungicide and Insecticide during the entire growing season.

Among one of the hardiest, easiest to grow Spring Bulb varieties, the Dutch Iris is a real must have. They are a fantastic cutflower, lasting for a couple of weeks in a vase.

Flowering relatively early in the season (around September) on lovely strong stems.
