Yellow Iris


Yellow Iris (Iris xiphium (Dutch Iris))

I planted some blue Iris bulbs over five years ago. This single yellow one came up unexpectedly. I still only have the one...must look for some more. ?

Isn't it lovely? Do you know if you can grow irises in containers? I love them, but I haven't any sunny gaps in the borders.

agree, it's very striking.

They should do well in a deepish container Melchi. They have quite study stems so should stand up well without too much support if any..

Hi Hb I've never tried to grow Irises, but I'm thinking of giving it a try after seeing some of the pictures yourself and others have posted, That is a truly stunning plant.

Thanks for that, Hb. I shall try some. I've got some dwarf iris in the garden. When I planted them, they got plenty of sun, but the surrounding plants have grown and they haven't flowered for a couple of years now.

After saying that I only have the one, I found another just behind it...?
