It is a pleasure for us to reintroduce this historic variety registered by Ferdinand Cayeux in 1906. This is a disploïd plicata with a white ground and blue-violet border. It produces a lot of small-sized flowers and is very vigorous.
An old variety created at the end of 19th century. Numerous small flowers with pure yellow standards and nearly horizontal white falls, strongly streaked with magenta. Pure yellow beards. Often produces several stems per rhizome from the start. Diploid iris, like the Cayeux variety "Ma Mie".
Revived historic variety dating from 1936, which is new to our collection. An agreeable and graceful amoena with red-purple falls edged with a fine white strip. Bright yellow beards and a slight aniseed perfume.
This historic variety (a descendent of "Dalmatica") features light to mid tones of lavender, lighter around the white, golden-tipped beards. Flowers are larger than the Iris Pallida's, and quite charming.
Standards are milky white, whilst light lemon coloured at the base. Falls are crimson red with a fine 2mm wide white border. Bright yellow beards. A graceful amoena with a good finish for the time period.
Similar in style to 'Fancy Dress' but created over 50 years ago! One could say it is a 'trail-blazer'. Magenta standards, finely striped in white. Falls are a purplish amethyst also discreetly striped white. Luminous sunny yellow beards.
