Iris 'Kent Pride' Iris 'Kent Pride'

Among our thousands of plant accessions, tall bearded iris are represented by just a single plant - Iris 'Kent Pride'.  This outlier in our collections strategy is sited in one of the choicest spots in the dry garden because it is a stunner.  Rich chestnut-red standards with the same overlaid on yellow around a white blaze on the falls - so good!

Iris sibirica 'Scramble' Iris 'Scramble'

We are pleased to be the first to introduce this excellent Sibirica Iris to North America. We were visiting John Grimshaw, plantsman extraordinaire and Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum, and walking about his home garden when he asked if we would like a bit of an Iris he had named with lovely scrambled egg flowers of yellow and cream. We said yes, of course because while we might be comparatively brutish colonists, we ain't without a certain native wit. Very floriferous on a shorter plant with flowers well-displayed.

Iris barbatula MD97 Iris barbatula ex Yunnan

We collected this in 1997 on the Tibetan Plateau near Zhongdian in an area of Tibetan open range. The early October withered, deciduous leaves and dried seed pods shrieked Iris!  Eventual flowers confirmed the species, first described in 1995.  Thin leaves and basal gorgeous flowers. Young plants.

Iris cristata 'Abbey's Violet' Iris cristata 'Abbey's Violet'

One of the darkest of the cristata selections, the violet-blue petals are made to appear even darker by the little thumbprint of yellow and white at their bases.  A small but mighty little woodland creeper which would revel in bright shade or morning sun.  The thin rhizomes trundle along on the surface and are plenty hardy so don't bury them in mulch!

Iris domestica (syn. Belamcanda chinensis) MD15-98 Iris domestica (syn. Belamcanda chinensis) MD 15-98

Blackberry Lily. Our collection of this extremely widespread Asian species which not only has attractive deep orange flowers that are overlaid in a plethora of red spots but also the seed is curiously attractive looking for all the world like a large blackberry. This has wide application in traditional Chinese medicine and our collection is likely an escapee from the local mountain village.

Primo little collector's Iris with charming white flowers - smaller than the more frequently encountered 'Alba' - over dense mounds of fine-bladed foliage.

Iris hookeri Iris hookeri

Found growing along coastal Maine and up the eastern Canadian seaboard, this was known as the dwarf form of I. setosa but is now regarded as a distinct species.  Favoring moist places but adapting very well to average garden conditions, this is best described in the most rigorous of botanical terms as "Cute".  Very hardy.

Seed-grown from a collection by Daniel Winkler near Chonye on the Tibetan Plateau.  Widely distributed in Asia and throughout the various 'stans, this remains oddly rare in commerce and is not often cultivated.  Thanks to Fran Hawk for flowering and identifying this collection before ours bloomed!  Narrow pale lavender tinted falls with soft blue-ish standards.

Iris lazica Iris lazica

A lesser-known relative of Iris unguicularis. This Turkish species while it blooms a bit later than it's famed cousin, is still early enough to be immensely gratifying plus it has hands down far more attractive evergreen foliage than I. unguicularis.  Easy with drainage.

Iris sibirica 'Devil's Dream' Iris sibirica 'Devil's Dream'

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.

Iris sp. CDHM 14571 Iris sp. CDHM 14571

Seed collected at 3200 meters in Sichuan in an open grazed small meadow area adjoining low scrub. Tightly clumping, deciduous and allied to Iris japonica but is something totally new.

A very good selection of Winter Iris - the species can start flowering in February here for us and at that time of the year, even the worst selection looks mighty fine but this one is truly worthy.  Blue standards - the central upright petals - and blue falls - the large lower petals - that carry a broad white blotch with fine blue lines.
