    Florists love Dutch iris as they have strong, straight stems and exquisite flowers that look great in spring bouquets. 'Gypsy Beauty' is a particluarly pretty one. It has slightly ruffled lavender standards and heavily veined, bicoloured falls, which are a lush mix of gold and purple. Plant more than you think you will need for the border, so you have plenty left over for cutting.

  • Garden care: Plant 10cm deep and 10cm apart in naturalistic drifts in September or October in a well-drained, sunny site.
