More Iris

This one came from a young boy in Georgia, several years ago when I was involved in a seed exchange. It's a very old variety that is delicately colored and it smells like Grape Kool-Aid.

I don't know where this one came from. It isn't the most beautiful, but I think it has character. See how distinct the veins in the lower petals are? Aand just look at the fuzzy yellow beard! Cute, huh?

The color isn't accurate on this one. It is actually a darker shade. The bees like it a lot so it must have a fragrance that attracts them.

This is one of my favorites. So perfect in form and the color is lovely. Makes me think of Angel wings.

If you want a flower that's easy to grow, is pest and disease resistant and has strong stems making them nice for bouquets, try Iris. You won't be sorry.
