Dutch iris, also known as Iris hollandica, have orchid-like flowers with silky petals. Flower colors range from pale blue and lemon through deep purple, bronze, rose and gold. Dutch iris are popular with floral designers as well as gardeners, because they are long-lasting and easy to arrange in a vase.
These irises need moist humus-rich, slightly alkaline to slightly acidic soil and can be grown in soggy conditions, alongside shallow water or even in a pond. Best planted in autumn, they love full sun, but in a hot climate, they will grow in light shade. They require wet roots at all times.
