Description

I don’t know why people are reluctant to love these Dutch irises. They perfectly fill the gap between the tulips and all the hardy annuals and roses with a full easy, breezy, blowing open prettiness that is difficult to find in that gappy moment of the year. We adore ‘Alaska’, particuarly lovely growing with the black-leaved cow parsley, Anthriscus ‘Ravenswing’.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips

Water in well after planting. Old flower stems and any dying foliage can be cut back in autumn. Apply a mulch of garden compost or well-rotted manure in spring. Caution: harmful if eaten.
