Graceful and elegant stunning in bouquets. This Dutch Iris sports silky petals in unconventional colors and is even more extraordinary when backlit with the sun. Chocolate-purple standards and brown-striped, butterscotch-yellow falls trigger second looks. We like the name; as the color of our Lion King reminds us of a majestic lion as it suns itself in a grassy savanna. Great cut flowers. 10 bulbs per bag. Bulb size 8+ cm.

Iris General Information

Dutch Iris' brilliant colors and later spring bloom times make these a beautiful addition to the garden. Flowers are held on above reed-like foliage. Best displayed among other perennials, whose foliage conceals the plants as they go dormant.

Iris Plant Care

Requires a sunny site with well-drained soil. Plant 4" apart and 4" deep. To provide nourishment for the bulb, allow foliage to yellow and dry after the flowers are spent before pruning. Interested in forcing bulbs? Visit our Useful Links page.
