Ordering iris bulbs and rhizomes online
An iris, just like a rainbow, needs sun to bloom properly. Therefore plant them in a place where they get enough sun during the day. The climate is therefore also important for growth. In a colder climate, the flowers will stay away until the winter cold has disappeared and the flowers will only develop in the spring. In a warmer climate, the iris will develop in the autumn, grow through the winter and produce flowers in the spring.

Different types of irises
There are irises that grow from a bulb, such as iris hollandica (Dutch iris), iris reticulata (dwarf iris) and iris hispanica (Spanish iris). And there are iris plants such as iris germanica (bearded iris), iris foetisissima (stinking iris), iris ensata (Japanese iris), iris pseudacorus (yellow iris), iris siberica (Siberian iris) and iris pumila (sword lily). The iris comes in many different sizes, colours and shapes. Did you know that the iris comes in all colours except pure red? To make your choice you can use the filter; choose for instance the flowering period, the colour, group or height.
History of the iris
Lis is a genus of the lily family (Iridaceae). Both the genus and the species are commonly called iris. The name Iris comes from the Greek and means 'rainbow'. The iris was the messenger of the Goddess Hera who brought messages from heaven to earth and vice versa through the rainbow. So it is not surprising that the goddess of the rainbow is also called Iris. But the flower iris was already cultivated 4000 years ago in Greece and Egypt. In the twelfth century, Louis the seventh had the iris put into his arms, according to him it brought him luck. For when he was trapped with his army and had to cross the river Lys, he saw an Iris pseudacorus (yellow lily) on the other side, so he crossed it. The French lily was called this sign. The sign is not a lily but an iris!
