Dutch irises have never grown wild in the Netherlands. Instead, they are the product of hybridisation carried out by a Dutch plant breeding firm by the name of Tubergen. 

They are easy to grow but need a rich, well-drained soil. 
The flowers are 10 cm in diameter, and are fabulous to use as cut flowers.
