Re: dutch bulbs

From: Bill Shear <BILLS@hsc.edu>

Pat--the key to growing dutch irises in colder climates seems to be to
plant late, so that no foliage appears above ground before winter.  Here
where winters are mild, the foliage that appears in fall or early winter
survives most seasons.  Those harsh winters where it has been killed
spelled the end for the bulbs, too.  I treat dutch iris as annuals, since
few of the bulbs survive our hot humid summers and clay soil.  They are so
cheap that it is worth replacing them each year.  Please try varieties from
the "Beauty" series if you can find them, they are a real improvement.
