I have a few more Iris that I didn't get pictures of this year. One a peachy pink color and another which is a very deep purple. They are gorgeous.
This is a rather odd looking little guy. I remember finding the parent tubers in a gravel pit near my house many years ago. I knew it had to be some sort of Iris so brought it home and planted it. Now I can't seem to get rid of it. It grows and grows and grows! And so do the seeds!
This purple bearded Iris has the true Iris shape, which is what the fleur-de-lis was patterned after. I love the variety of colors Iris give. Also the stems are strong and don't flop over to the ground in the first wind. The flowers are wonderful in bouquets too,
This is my newest Iris. She looks all white but actually has just the slightest hint of lavender. My daughter is getting rid of a lot of her
gardens so I brought this home not knowing what color it would be. I am so glad I did. I think it's beautiful!
