[PHOTO] dutch iris

Dutch iris and to-be-researched other bulb.  I planted big bulbs deep, just
covered with soil, intermediate sized bulbs and just covered with soil and
then small bulbs and covered with soil.  The theory was the small bulbs
would bloom early. Their dying foliage would be masked by the new foliage of
the intermediate sized bulbs. The intermediate sized bulbs would bloom and
their dying foliage would be hidden by the new foliage of the large bulbs.
The large bulbs would then bloom.  As you can see by this photo, they all
bloomed at once. Sometimes like this time, the results are kind of
interesting. Other times some of the bloom of the little bulbs gets
completely hidden.
