Description
 
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. When Cotswold Garden Plants first introduced this in the UK in 2011, John mused on his blog about how nice it would be to receive a voluntary royalty which he could use to help fund the educational needs of a Maasai child he is sponsoring.  School doesn't get less expensive as you get older so we are going to give $5 from each plant sold back to John.
