Peeping out amongst the exuberant herbaceous blooms and foliage are the clean-cut flowers of Dutch iris (Iris x hollandica), zones 5 to 9. Monet was passionate about mixing different types of plants, from the simplest wildflower to the most rare variety, as long as he acheived the effect he wanted.Unlike the large rhizome-grown bearded iris, Dutch irises are evergreen and clump forming. They are easy to grow and great as cut flowers.

Bulbous irises. These include the Dutch and Spanish irises. The Dutch irises are fairly short, with 1 1/2- to 2-foot stems. Flowers come in a range of colors. They start blooming in March in warmer climates but not until May or even June in colder areas. Spanish irises are similar to Dutch irises but tend to be smaller and bloom about two weeks later. Both want full sun and prefer a location where they won’t receive summer water. Plant in October or November, 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. Water from the time leaves appear until about four weeks after the flowers have finished blooming. Reticulata irises are the shortest irises, usually not reaching more than 8 inches high, with small blossoms. The leaves may not appear until after the flower blooms. These irises are ideal for edgings, rock gardens and containers. Flowers generally are violet, blue-violet or white, though there is a yellow species. Set them out in fall, in full sun, 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 to 4 inches apart. Water regularly from fall through spring but keep the soil dry in the summer.

Cherish blooming iris. Oh, the irises are blooming their little heads off. After they bloom, cut the flower stalks to tidy up the plant. Recently I cut some for a friend. She took a whiff and realized, for the first time, that bearded irises have a lovely scent — making them enjoyable indoors too.Cut the flower stalks of daffodils. Try to ignore the leaves as the plants naturally die back.

Beardless irises. These include Japanese iris, Louisiana iris, Siberian iris and Spuria iris. There are also some specialty species. Japanese irises have 4- to 12-inch-wide flowers that sit on stems that can reach 4 feet. Colors include white, pink, blue and all shades of purple; flowers appear in late spring. They are a good choice for along the edges of ponds. In areas with warm summers, give then some light shade or filtered afternoon sun. Plant 2 inches deep and 1 1/2 feet apart, with the leaf ends pointed in the direction you want them to grow. They can be set out in spring as well. Louisiana irises are native to the lowlands and swamps of the Gulf Coast of the U.S.; they rival the color range of the bearded irises and grow 2 to 5 feet tall. True to their native habitat, they want a lot of moisture and do well along ponds in neutral to acidic soil. Plant 1 inch deep and 1 1/2 to 2 feet apart. They generally like full sun, but give them light shade if the summer heat is intense. They’ll also need winter protection if the ground freezes in winter. Siberian irises have flowers in shades of white, purple, pink, blue and even light yellow that almost seem to peer out from their tall grasslike leaves. The leaves are generally between 1 and 3 feet tall; stem height ranges from 14 inches to almost 4 feet tall. Plant in late summer (or early in spring) in cold-winter regions, or in fall where there are hot summers and mild or moderate winters. They want neutral to acidic soil and full sun unless the summers are hot. Set bulbs 1 to 2 inches deep and 1 to 2 feet apart. Water regularly to liberally during growth and bloom. Spuria iris resembles Dutch iris, with leaves reaching 3 to 4 feet tall and flowers in a full range of colors, including some browns, on stems that reach 3 to 6 feet tall. Plant in full sun in late summer or early fall, 1 inch deep and 1 1/2 to 2 feet apart. Provide regular water while growing and blooming. Provide winter protection if temperatures drop consistently below freezing. Landscape by The New York Botanical Garden The New York Botanical Garden SaveEmail Bulbous irises.

The season starts with the miniature dwarf bearded iris, which is the first to flower in April; it ends in late June or early July with tall bearded iris. Growing tip: Most irises need well-drained soil in full sun. To keep these irises at their best they should be divided and replanted in July or August every two to three years. Any poor or diseased plants can be discarded, while the best are replanted.
