So-called Dutch Irises bloom in late spring (May or June depending on region), and they easily naturalize in the right setting. The knee-high plants are deer resistant, and make excellent cut flowers. Over time they will form strong clumps, and these can be divided every three or four years to spread throughout the garden. This pleasantly varied colourful mix is hardy to Zone 5. 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.
