Now I must admit that I’m rather partial to blue flowers and none more so than Dutch irises. There’s something about their tall stately stature and the glorious blue with the faint hint of yellow that just begs attention. If you are planning a bulb display, consider planting them in huge drifts for massed effect. Whilst yes, your garden would look rather bare after they are past their peak display times, during their peak you’d be blessed with this carpet of blue to adorn your garden beds! Just glorious! Also note the undertones of white – combinations of blue and white are easy winners in any landscaping stakes – classic cool colors that mellow the landscape.
