The so-called 'Dutch' irises provide bright colour in late spring or early summer. Each strong, upright stem produces a short succession of flowers, with a good range of colour from the available varieties.
Iris 'Frans Hals' has pale violet flowers with much darker purple falls, the two colours making an interesting contrasts.

|Iris 'Amber Beauty' has flowers that are basically yellow, but suffused with other colours.|
|Iris 'Cream Beauty' looks cream from a distance, but really the flowers are white, with strong yellow colouring, notably in a central stripe along the falls.|
|Iris hollandica mixed is a mixture of many varieties, all with excellent flowers.|
|Iris 'Oriental Beauty' has flowers with a fantastic contrast between the greenish yellow falls and the blue-purple of the standards.Always very popular.|
|Iris 'Sky Beauty' hs flowers that are sky blue, with a just a hint of purple, rather paler in the standards than the falls, and with a large, round, yellow 'sun' shining from each fall. It is really the flower to remind you of glorious summer days.|
