Miniature irises look so good in mass plantings, and Iris J. S. Dyt is no exception. At just 15cm (6") tall, it will naturalize in the right setting, putting on a real show in very early spring. The surprisingly tough little plants are hardy to Zone 5, and unbothered by both squirrels and deer. Each dark purple bloom has three "tongues" that each bear a stripe of bright yellow. Ten bulbs (corms) per package.

Bulbs are easy to plant and easy to grow. Flower Bulbs are broken down into two very general groups – Fall planting bulbs benefit from sitting in cold soil. Spring planting bulbs do not require cold soil to trigger flowering. Fall planting bulbs can be planted any time between late September and January, but most gardeners plant fall bulbs in October and November, about the same time you would plant garlic. Fall planting bulbs will bloom the following spring and early summer. Spring planting bulbs should be sunk into the ground in March and April. They tend to bloom later in the spring, into mid-summer.
