This is an unknown variety, bought very cheaply from a local plantsman. Over the years these have multiplied and there are now lots of them, providing a colourful display from late October onwards. They are growing in a rocky area, where there is very little soil, but a good amount of sun.
Mid Nov 2011- I have just ordered 24 mixed dwarf Iris (Diggers’ Club) and 18 tall bearded iris (Tempo Two Iris Nursery) so look forward to their arrival by post. Iris blooms were my late Dad’s favourite and I it’s scary because I am becoming hooked on them too. I also love mowing and watering – two of his favourite pastimes as well!
