After planting Iris Ruffled Velvet bulbs, it usually takes around 4 to 5 months for them to sprout. Fall bulbs go in a dormant state during the winter, they need this period of chill to grow. However, the exact timing may vary depending on various factors, such as soil temperature, moisture levels, and individual bulb characteristics. Warmer soil temperatures generally promote faster sprouting, while cooler temperatures may prolong the process. It's important to note that some bulbs may exhibit a delayed sprouting pattern, with certain bulbs emerging earlier than others. Patience is key when waiting for Iris Ruffled Velvet to sprout, as their growth rate can differ based on environmental conditions and bulb variability.

This allows sufficient time for the bulbs to establish their root systems before the onset of winter. If you live in an area with mild winters, you might have a more extended planting window. However, in regions with harsh winters, it's best to complete the planting by late summer or early fall to ensure the bulbs have ample time to settle in and prepare for the colder months ahead.
