    The incredible colouring of this beautiful Dutch iris is a rich blend of red, brown and purple tones. Perfect for a bruised border, or for adding a bit of oomph to softer colours. It looks wonderful when planted in drifts through the border, or when allowed to form larger clumps in naturalised planting schemes. The flowers will last well after being cut too.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm deep and 10cm apart in naturalistic drifts in September or October in a well-drained, sunny site.

  • Harmful if eaten

      Hello there
      Beause of the mild autumn we have had so far, a number of bulbs are starting to come through early. Once we have some cold weather that will stop their growth. Hope this helps.
