Last fall, I decided that I really wanted to focus on introducing a wide range of spring flowering bulbs into my yard. In purchasing these bulbs, I specifically wanted to buy types that I knew would naturalize and multiply. In this, one bulb that I decided to plant was the ‘Harmony’ variety of dwarf dutch iris.
Unlike their taller counterparts, dwarf dutch iris plants bloom extremely early – usually in late winter. For me, these dwarf dutch iris are the very first bulbs to bloom once the weather has warmed up some – they even beat the crocus!
I’m really pleased with this variety for a lot of reasons. I’m so happy that the rabbits and squirrels have decided to leave these bulbs alone. Additionally, I really love how uniform and consistent my little flower patch looks. Every single bulb, of the 25 that I planted, opened within two days of each other. I imagine that making a mass planting of these would be gorgeous.
