The Iris 'Mount Everest', 'Iris hollandica', a fall planted bulb, is a bright and airy dutch iris that resembles a bird in flight. Its unmatched presence is an elegant addition to any garden. The exquisite white flowers rest atop sturdy stems. The sword-like leaves add oft-lacking vertical lines to the garden. Despite their name, these irises never grew wild in the Netherlands. Instead, they are the products of hybridization by a Dutch plant breeding firm. The Iris blooms in late spring to early summer for a 2 - 3 week period. Plant Dutch Iris bulbs in 10 to 14 day intervals to enjoy a continuous supply of cut flowers. For a more striking effect, plant the bulbs in groups of 20 or more. In cold areas the Iris should be mulched in winter to protect from frost. The Iris plant is great for borders, containers, naturalizing, and cut flowers. They are deer, rabbit and squirrel resistant.
Scientific Name : Iris hollandica 'Mount Everest'
