Plant These Irises to Grow Florist-Style Blooms

Though shorter than their bearded and beardless iris cousins, bulbous irises shouldn’t be overlooked when it comes to planning your spring bulb garden. Dutch irises are probably the best known, but Spanish, English and reticulata irises need similar care and should also be considered. All of these are true bulbs and fit easily into the garden and containers. Look for bulbs in early fall and plant when they first appear in nurseries.

Caution: Iris bulbs are toxic to people and pets.
