Outdoor Beds or direct soil:

  1. Find a location where the soil drains well.  Dutch irises perform best in soil that provides good drainage.
  2. Site your bronze dutch iris bulbs where they will receive full sun.
  3. Dig holes and plant the irises 10cm deep and 7cm apart.
  4. The bulbs look like small pointed onions. Plant with the pointed end facing upwards.
  5. After planting, water well, gently soaking the soil to settle it around the bulbs.

Pots, Barrels or containers:

  1. Fill your containers with good quality, well-drained soil. Make sure there are adequate drainage holes;  bulbs must never sit in waterlogged soil or they will rot.
  2. Dutch iris plants are tall and slim. Plant them in large containers and add other bulbs, perennials or annuals to fill out the area around their slender ankles.
  3. Site your bronze dutch iris bulbs where they will receive full sun.
  4. Dig holes and plant the irises 10cm deep and 5-7cm apart. The bulbs look like small pointed onions. Plant with the pointed end facing upwards.
  5. After planting, water well to settle the soil around the bulbs.
  1. Notes:
  2. When in bloom, feel free to cut iris flowers for spring bouquets. This will not hurt the plants.
  3. After blooming has finished for the season leave the foliage in place; don’t cut it off. The leaves will gather sunlight, create food through photosynthesis and strengthen the bulbs for the future. Water as needed during active growth periods.
  4. During the summer the leaves will yellow and die back as the plant slips into dormancy. Foliage many be removed at this point.
  5. Your Dutch irises will rest for a few months before beginning the next growing cycle.
