Dutch Iris Sapphire Beauty

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The sparkling, cobalt blue petals of the Dutch Iris ‘Sapphire Beauty’ are embellished by a contrasting golden stripe. The jewel-like flowers are borne above delicate foliage, allowing showy blooms to be displayed to full advantage. This precious gem is one of the best Dutch Iris varieties, treasured for its large petals, intense colour, and vigorous growth. The reliable bulbs thrive on well-drained soil in a sunny position, perfect for rockeries and south-facing borders. Renowned for its long vase life, ‘Sapphire Beauty’ makes a splendid cut flower, adding luxurious depth to your floral arrangements and bouquets.

Care Guide

Cultivate Dutch Iris in a sunny area of the garden with free-draining soil.

Plant the teardrop bulbs in autumn with their pointy tips facing up, 10-15cm deep and 15cm apart in the soil.  For best effect, grow in large groups.

Silky flowers in vibrant hues bloom during June and July on stems 50-95cm tall.  Excellent for cutting. Leave some foliage behind to die back naturally and feed the bulb for next year’s flowers.

Bulbs will naturalise easily when left undisturbed in a warm, dry location.
