"Discovery" Dutch iris develops classic, blue flowers whose bottom petals are adorned in centres with yellow stripes. It adds a cooling touch to all arrangements. It harmonizes with virtually every flower colour. The ornamental form and erected growth form of this excellent variety make it stand out from other plants on a mixed border of flower bed. The "Discovery" iris decorates gardens with its bright, fresh colours in May and June every year. The sturdy, undemanding "Discovery" iris belongs to plants that look particularly well planted in larger numbers, in colourful groupings and rows. Narrow, long, grass-like leaves perfectly complement the flowering stalks, and allow you to include irises in almost every arrangement. Growing irises in rock gardens, where it wonderfully harmonizes with harsh beauty of the stones and rocks, is an excellent idea. Iris hollandica is an all-purpose plant that does not require too much maintenance. It also harmonises with various species of garden plants. Irises of the "Discovery" can be planted in large planters that will brighten up a balcony, terrace, or the entry area at your home. This easy to grow, reliable bulb plant is perfectly suited for planting on flower beds and borders, where it naturalizes well, spreading more and more every year. Its long, slender stems, exquisite flowers and long life in vases make it a truly universal decoration that can be used in variety of spectacular ways.

This charming bulbous flowering plant grows up to 60 centimetres tall. It requires a warm, sheltered, and sunny situation. It prefers fertile, permeable, humous soils that have a neutral or slightly acidic reaction. Irises belong to those bulbous plants that do not tolerate too moist soils and shady sites. Plant elongated bulbs that are covered with pale scales in autumn, from September to November. Recommended planting depth is 8 to 10 centimetres. Keep plants 10 to 20 centimetres apart. Plant bulbs in spring, in April and May.  Cover the site where you grow irises with straw, dry leaves, conifer twigs, or bark before the winter. Strong frosts might accidentally damage bulbs, even though this species belongs to winter-hardy plants.  Trim flowering stalks after the flowers have wilted, but leave the leaves to let them feed the bulb for next year. Remove the foliage only after it yellows and the bulb enters dormancy stage.
