Bump up the spring border display with this gorgeous Dutch iris. The large flowers are a delicious blend of burgundy-brown and golden yellow with distinctive patterning on the lower petals. Dutch iris are great for cutting and they are also useful for bridging the gap between spring and early summer flowers. This is a particularly decorative one!
