Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
The gentle pastel tones of this pretty Dutch Iris will add some sparkle to your spring borders. Iris 'Silvery Beauty' has a cool, frosted appearance with pale lilac petals and icy-white falls, filling the colour gap between spring bulbs and summer perennials. Upright flower stems rise above neat clumps of slender, arching foliage, making this a fabulous cut flower. Plant the bulbs in swathes throughout herbaceous borders to create a dramatic display. Like all Dutch Iris, its strength is in numbers, so be generous when planting them to create the best effect. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 20cm (10").

How to grow bulbs, corms and tubers


10 Bulbs (KC1328)

Plant Dutch Iris bulbs in autumn, at a depth of approximately twice their own height and 10cm (4") apart. Choose a position in full sun on any free draining soil. To create a natural effect, cast the bulbs across the area and plant them where they land. Alternatively, plant bulbs in deep containers of loam based compost such as John Innes No. 2.
When growing Dutch Iris, allow their foliage to die back naturally before removing it in order to feed the bulb for the following spring. If growing Iris in containers, feed with a high-potash fertiliser after flowering to encourage larger bulbs to form. Lift and separate overcrowded clumps of Dutch iris bulbs in autumn.

Caution: irritant to skin and eyes, harmful if eaten.
