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

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. ...
