Iris 'Pretty in Blue'

Dutch Iris

Hardy Bulb

Cool shades of purple, blue and white make a stunning colour combination in late spring and early summer borders. These hardy Dutch Iris plants bear their graceful blooms on straight stems that rise from among airy clumps of narrow, strap-like leaves. Plant Iris 'Pretty in Blue' in large groups for the best effect. Spare a few from the garden for an elegant flower arrangement indoors. Bulb size 06/07. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Plant Dutch Iris bulbs in autumn, at a depth of approximately twice their own height and 10cm (4") apart. Choose a position in full sun on any free draining soil. To create a natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land. Alternatively, plant bulbs in deep containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No. 2.
When growing Dutch Iris, allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it in order to feed the bulb for the following spring. If growing Iris in containers, feed with a high-potash fertiliser after flowering to encourage larger bulbs to form. Lift and separate overcrowded clumps of Dutch iris bulbs in autumn.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
