Iris 'Dazzling Eyes' is a 2004 Rick Tasco hybrid that has shown incredible vigor in our trials. Iris 'Dazzling Eyes' has a nice white and purple striped eyezone inside the blue-lavender petals. As with all Iris unguicularis cultivars, Iris 'Dazzling Eyes' likes a bright sunny location and good drainage, although half day shade is also fine. For us, flowering usually begins in November and continues through March, pausing only for extremely cold weather.
