Bright clean white standards and wide pansy violet falls. White heart streaked violet and lit up with a liminous orange-red beard. Excellent stems. Sixth prize at the American Convention in 1998. One of our best creations.
Huge flowers with white standards tinted with lavender and soft lavender falls with lavender beards. Thick stems with perfect branching. The delicate tones of Cumulus give a great feeling of freshness.
Gracefully arched white standards pleasantly complement the wide rosy-lavender falls carrying white beards. These huge flowers (12 cm x 16 cm) are well-bodied and have a gently ruffled shape. 8 to 9 buds per stem.
Stout flowers of graceful proportions. A new and unique amoena that combines pristine white standards with soft sky blue falls. Thick stems bearing 8 to 10 copiously ruffled flowers. Multiplies quickly.
Like a cloud in a clear blue sky. White standards and light blue falls with discreet white beards. Imposing flowers (12 cm x 18 cm) well-proportioned to the strong foliage and the sturdy stems. An average of 8 to 9 buds.
Yes, "Fabuleux" is fabulous. It has ruffled pure white standards and white falls with a pure, bright blue border (2 cm wide), slightly darker on edges. It has a wonderful shape with wide strongly ruffled falls, yellow beards and strong stems. In fact, a taller and darker "Alizés".
A very appealing Amoena with pure white standards infused with pale apricot as the buds open, and copper-apricot falls. Bright tangerine beards. The falls are vigorous, nearly horizontal and closely ruffled at the edges. Well-balanced strong stems.
A symphony of unusual tones: lilac-white standards, mid-fuchsia falls and almost fluorescent beards between orange and red which bring a very luminous touch. Balanced stem, flowers well borne and moderately waved.
Velvety blue-black amoena with golden yellow beard ringed by a small white throat. Under certain light, the falls seem almost black. Well-spaced branching leaves room for each flower to express its full beauty. An invaluable step towards a pure black and white hybrid.
Magnificent contrast between the immaculate white standards and purpled magenta falls. Clear yellow beards prolonged by a white medial stripe. It has the vigour of its parent "Jazzed Up" and flowers generously because of its profusion of buds: 11 to 14 on each stem!
Heavily ruffled, icy white standards and light violet falls with darker veins. Gold beards, ending in very short violet horns, lighten the whole flower. Excellent growth, numerous buds and perfect stalks.
Robust descendant of "Futuriste" and "World Premier". Very pale blue standards and strong indigo-blue falls, fairly discreet yellow beards. Enormous flowers enlivened by strong, ample ruffles. Flowers quite close to the main stem, a characteristic inherited from its parent, "World Premier".
New and seducing amoena: white standards flushed light pink at their base and with a hint of cream at tip; red maroon falls with a large (1 cm) near pink border. Tangerine beards lightening this uncommon combination of colours.
Very large, original amoena with pure white standards and copper beige falls finely edged with cream. Pale yellow beards and styles. Very wide flowers (11.5cm x 16.5cm) remain in proportion to the foliage. Excellent!
White standards infused with golden yellow at the base, lemon yellow falls with a white area below the bright lemon yellow beard. Superb stems with 3 "branches" carrying 11 to 13 buds on average. Healthy foliage and very prolific. Ideal plant for the garden, lovely soft colour.
Wonderful contrast between the pure white standards and the velvety, very dark violet falls, nearly black when the flower first opens. Deep egg yolk yellow beards light up the whole. Moderately sized flowers with ruffled edges, a well-proportioned plant. We are very happy to call this iris after the famous Gien pottery in our neighbouring town.
Magnificent offspring of our champion "Ravissant". Totally pure white standards and large pinkish purple falls with a large white heart, contrasting against the orange-yellow beards. Moderate ruffles, excellent branching. Pure, crisp colours. A very decorative flower.
We hesitated for a long time whether to introduce this iris, but lots of iris lovers urged us that we should... So here is an amoena with mid-grey rather than white standards. The golden yellow beards light up the grey of the nearly horizontal falls. Certainly an unusual colour, but original, and would have its place in many a garden. 5 to 6 buds.
Faintly bluish, white standards, light to mid lilac falls, paler towards their edges. Strongly ruffled and delicately crimped flower. Golden yellow beards, pale violet at the tips. A classic but nonetheless attractive colour. Really late flowering.
This son of our famous iris "Noctambule" has inherited its height and its elegance. Slightly open, pure white standards and nearly horizontal, rich mid to navy blue falls. Egg-yolk yellow beards on a white background bring luminosity to the heart of the flower. Sharp, pure colour contrast.
White standards infused with soft yellow at their base. White falls overlaid at the top with a soft butter yellow pattern. Orange yellow beards. 6 to 8 broad ruffled flowers on well-branched stalks. Very vigorous, forming quickly large and decorative clumps.
A very French iris named after the remarkable British Cathedral where it has been launched! Creamy white standards with finely serrated butter yellow edges. Deep golden yellow falls and orange beards. A very rich tone, sound branching, good substance and averaging 8 buds per stem.
An outstanding and aristocratic descendant of 'Fit for a King': Pure white standards and purplish plum coloured falls underlined by a narrow white edge. Stalks are tall with numerous flowers (average of 10 to 13 buds).
An excentric son of "Romantic Evening" with white standards and falls between off white, brown and light copper. Bright rust-red beards add character to this amoena. Styles are white tipped with copper brown. Shafts with 2 to 3 branches, each carrying 8 to 12 buds.
Straw-yellow amoena which is lighter around the butter- yellow beards. The falls feature graceful frills and a thin white border (1 to 2 mm) and the edges are speckled with brown-red. An exquisite shape.
This amoena of subtle, delicate tones has something unusual and attractive. White, slightly bluish petals and lilac-white falls turning to lilac toward the edges. The tangerine beards are continued by a dark lilac stripe. Good shape, generous flowering and good branching.
Almost certainly one of our stars in 2016, as all our visitors in spring 2015 approved it across the board. White standards with clearly aubergine-toned edges, falls of a nearly black crimson purple and a luminous burnt-red beard resting on a white area with dark purple striations. Numerous, ruffled and shimmering flowers (9 to 11 buds on average).
We think this is the best yellow amoena in existence, due to its dazzling and unequalled contrast. Standards of pure white and semi-horizontal undulated falls of ultra-vivid and consistent golden yellow edged with tiny ripples. Pale orange beards. Excellent and well branched stems. Long flowering.
Belongs to the category of "miniature tall beardeds", a sort of bonsai but quite beautiful. Pure white standards and purple to black falls with a fine white border. The yellow beards are surround by purplish black striations. Most interesting!
Resulting from 'Magnétisme' and 'Ciel Gris sur Poilly' – the 2 varieties featured on the cover of our 2015 catalogue – this beauty was not achieved by accident. White standards with a hint of grey, round and thick semi-horizontal velvety falls to frame a bronze beard. Beautifully solid and well branched out stems (8 buds on average). It will be officially named in 2016 in honour of the Château de Pesselières and we believe it will be very successful.
The offspring of 'Ciel Gris sur Poilly', it features standards of white infused with yellow at the base which are framed with falls o smoky yellow that turn to a soft beige-grey along the edges. The beards are of a bright corn-yellow. A quite unique tone combination!
This is the very own sibling of our iris 'Pesselières', introduced in 2016, and like its brother, hued in mystery. It boasts standards of a very light blue and velvety horizontal dark-violet falls with a fine light crimson border (2 mm). Thick copper orange beards. The stems are well balanced with low ramification.
Standards are white with a very slight bluish hue . Almost horizontal, slate-grey falls lightened up by eggyolk yellow beards over a creamish area striated with olive brown lines. Strong stems with an average of 7 buds.
Standards between pale mauve and light purple. Wide falls in pearl-white, turning slightly pink. Coral tipped, white beards. Excellent branching with an average of 9-10 buds per stalk and often 3 flowers blooming at the same time.
