Description

Named Dutch Iris ‘Autumn Princess’ for its rich, warming and hearty tones, this spring-flowering beauty will produce an incredibly indulgent blend of burnt ochre and ruby red petals for May and June colour. Warm, dusky shades like these are perfect for creating contrast with the cooler colours in the garden but without looking brash, so they’re perfect if your style is a more subtle or natural look.

Enjoy these burnished beauties in borders combined with soft ornamental grasses or mixed muted late-spring flowers for a modern and sophisticated display. Dutch Irises are also an excellent value bulb which, once planted, will flower every year during late spring for years to come, each time producing a stronger and more established clump. A popular florists’ choice, Dutch Irises are renowned for their excellent vase life and intricate flowers which bring long-lasting colour and stunning detail to any arrangement.
