There are several different Iris types which makes them extremely versatile. The lovely Dwarf Iris are among the earliest of the Spring bulbs and provide the richest colours. The Dutch Iris will thrive under almost any condition and commence flowering in June, often produce secondary blooms prolonging the flowering period. The Spanish Iris are very similar but of a slightly smaller habit and a little later in flowering. [Photo: Dutch Iris Silvery Beauty - 40670]
