When to Plant Iris Bulbs: For a Colorful and Showy Display

Determine when to plant iris bulbs and you can enjoy these sensational blooms from early spring through summer. With distinctive, elegant petals and exquisite markings, they never cease to impress.

Choose from early flowering varieties with their delicate flowers and delicate fragrance or opt for one of the many taller European types such as Dutch, English and Spanish which come into their own midsummer. These tend to come in a wider range of colors and have taller, longer blooms on dark green, sword-shaped foliage.
