  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 ... Learn More

  10. 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

As they then stay fixed to the open pod and do not fall, whole stems can then be cut to make an impressive floral display. Just a very few seeds collected. ... Learn More
