We have long affection for all the forms of the dwarf Iris cristata which is an east coast native and with Powder Blue Giant our affections sometimes manifest themselves in PDA's such as stroking the large medium blue flowers and oohing. Deciduous carpeter. A real sweety.
This clone of this fabulous Iris introduced by Darrell Probst is one of our favorite plants of all time. Very fine grassy foliage making a large lax dense mound that is festooned with small white jewels of flowers. It won't happen overnight but give this a few years and you will have some serious bragging rights. Not that we ever concern ourselves with things like that.............
Very rare collectible and delectable Iris from China introduced by Darrell Probst. This Iris is seldom available and is one of the stars in our shade garden. This particular clone has slightly larger flowers that are white without any blue shading. Makes an evergreen fine grassy mound. Best i light shade or part sun. Slow growing and totally rules when mature.
The nerve of the English making Pacific Coast Hybrid Iris selections! But we 'll let it go this time because this is a winner. Falls the color of antique rose with nice venation and yellow thumbprint with subtle falls of the aged pink so often found in grandma;s house. Vigorous and sturdy evergreen.
Rich purple flowers of a color more suited to the dreams of the Pope than the Devil unless of course the Devil is dreaming of someday wearing those rich purple robes of the Pope in which case it is appropriately named. Just speculation. Great color anyway.
Algerian Iris. Nothing like this evergreen Mediterranean prize. This blooms depending on the weather as early as November but generally the main flowering is in February with short-stemmed good-sized light lavender blue flowers. We cut the leaves back to 6" in Nov to best see the flowers. Newly potted strong divisions.
