                    ESPRIT LÉGER

                        One of our favourites among our 25 new varieties for 2021! Absolutely pure white standards and falls with a pure white background also bordered in a regular way in deep indigo blue over nearly 2 cm in width. Bright yellow beards. Sculptural in shape and as majestic as the eponymous temple. (Cayeux Seedling 12 238 C).

                          DOMINIQUE C.

                          Radiant and sparkling, as was Dominique herself... the colours of this iris have an unforgettable "joie de vivre": pure bright yellow standards, white falls with a wide yellow border creeping towards the centre. Golden yellow beards. Quite rounded flowers with crimped edges like its parent "Just Before Dawn". Quite a short stem but well-branched.


                            Splendid mid-blue perfectly uniform, without the slightest trace of purple. Orange-yellow beards at the heart, white at their ends, discreet so do not detract from this harmonious blue. Very prolific like it’s parent "Aquamarine". We are honoured that Jean Giono's daughter has agreed to have one of our new irises named after her! (Cayeux sowing 11 266 A).


                              A spicy warm variety: pure bright medium-yellow standards, falls between red and black with a yellow centre that spreads out in fine yellow streaks. The yellow-orange beards quite often end in a little dark red spatula, which gives an extra original note to this "spicy" flower. Winner of the "Public Prize" at Franciris in 2011
