Named after the beautiful Ile de Ré off the Brittany coast, it displays a combination of delicate seaside colours: the bluish-white on opening becomes pure white in full bloom. Pale yellow beards tipped with white. Numerous remarkably shaped ruffled flowers and a strong multiplier.
Quite simply: an excellent iris! Creamy white standards and wide, pure white falls with graceful regular waves. The lemon beards, adorned with two bright lemon marks illuminate the centre of the flower. Very free-flowering and really vigorous.
White just flushed pinkish cream, this being slightly darker at the centre of the standards. Pale yellow beards tipped with orange and shouldered with apricot. Gracious flowers with crimped edges. Sometimes reblooms at the end of summer.
Bred from "Special Feature", it has inherited its spur-like beards, these ones being pale lavender, the rest of the flower being ice-white. Very strong, well-bodied flowers, with nearly horizontal falls. A classic beauty, useful in the garden for its striking looks and late flowering.
This descendant of 'Goldkist' has charming numerous little white flowers (average of 10 – 12), and white beards tipped with tangerine. Excellent branching and vigorous growth. For those who are keen on hybridizing, this is an excellent parent for creating intermediate irises.
Difficult to find a more elegant iris: white standards toned with pink at the base. Wide pinkish white falls boasting discrete light green veins. White beards tipped with red. Large-sized flowers, nicely laced and ruffled.
The Loire, a source of inspiration? Certainly, with the marvellous white standards amply infused with golden yellow and almost horizontal falls whose scoured edges reveal golden yellow. Egg yolk yellow beards with golden shoulders. One of our favourites among our 2020 creations. 7 to 8 buds on average. Sparkling like the wine of the same name. (Cayeux seedling 10 192 B).
Pure white standards barely infused with light purple at their base, white falls with small streaks of pinkish purple on the shoulders and tangerine beards. Vigorous plant, stems with four branches and 10 to 12 buds on average giving a long flowering. (Black 2011)
