  1. IRIS BLUE RIBAND

    Huge, sumptuous flowers with wide, heavily marked petals open over an extended period from early to late summer. Some years ago we were given a few precious seeds from a skilled breeder of these desirable plants and these gems were the result. Their extreme breeding means that very few fertile seeds are ever set. With very few exceptions, they are reluctant to set pods. Around 70% of diploid crosses end up producing seeds, but only 20% of tetraploid crosses do so .....in a good year. In addition tetraploid pods typically contain fewer seeds. Finally, these seeds usually germinate more slowly than diploids and other irises, BUT they make fabulous, showy flowers, and are well worth the wait!! ... Learn More

  2. IRIS BUCHARICA

    In mid spring, fascinating, greenish yellow flowers with deeper yellow falls, rise out of an interlocking fan of shiny, apple-green, deeply channelled leaves, all from a strange rootstock that is half bulb, half tuberous root. Juno irises come from the Middle East and Central Asia, and most of them are difficult to grow outside in the garden, but the exception is Iris bucharica, originating from rocky mountain slopes in north-eastern Afghanistan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. ...

  5. IRIS CHRYSOGRAPHES 'BLACK KNIGHT'

    This gorgeous black flowered clone is one of the very darkest irises grown, although the flower colour is in fact a very deep violet that appears black, the falls having an exquisitely delicate golden tracery of veins near the centre. This solid clump-forming, rhizomatous perennial has upright, strap-like, grey-green leaves, and is truly one of the nearest flower colours to black it is possible to grow although seedlings may vary. ...

  8. IRIS FOETIDISSIMA

    The unusual "Welsh Gladwyn," is usually grown not for its quite pretty pale mauve flowers, but for the bright orange seeds which burst forth from the seed-pods in autumn, but do not fall until spring (as demonstrated in the picture). The botanical name refers to the fact that the crushed leaves smell like roast beef!!! Whole stems can then be cut to make an impressive floral display which lasts until the following year. Once you have a clump be sure to share the ripe seeds around you borders where they will slowly naturalise into trouble-free clumps! ... Learn More
