  2. Iris aucheri


    This exceptional Juno iris has creamy white flowers with a yellow blade, which open in spring above large glossy green leaves. The strong stems have strap-shaped leaves on alternate sides of the stem, and several flowers in the upper leaf axils. When fully-grown, the bulbs have substantial fleshy roots, which should always be retained, if development is not to be held back for a year. All require deep, well-drained soil, and a summer rest, so are best kept in large, deep pots in a frame, and covered through the summer months. Native to Western Asia, Turkey, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Jordan, it is perhaps one of the easier species to try in a sunny well-drained border. ... Learn More



    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 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, well worth the wait!! ... Learn More
