Two years ago a gardening friend Jen gave me these iris. I have never been a fan of iris, and they require replanting every few years so I thought them not worth the work. However, I love the the wide bluegreen blades o the foliage. So I decided to try more, and these are exceptional. The purple in the falls blends with the other purples blooming now and the tall flower stalks are justly regal. They are impressive during this short bloom time, then I will have the foliage as a foil to other colors and textures through the year.
