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.
Lilac-white standards on opening, then becoming pure white. Pure white falls with a clear bright lilac-pink border (7 mm) and mandarin beards. The stems, sometimes double at the bases, bear up to 12 buds. A fresh crisp effect.
Pale lavender-pink standards, cream falls with a fine, precisely marked, purple border (5 mm). Wide orange-red beards marked to the tips with streaks of purple dots. Medium-sized, compact flowers with lively ondulations. 8 buds.
A strongly coloured iris which we are proud to name after a great French courtier! Soft yellow standards above falls of the same yellow with a wide, raspberry red border, strongly waved like the folds of a courtier's costume. Large flowers carried on tall, well-branched stems.
Sumptuous new variety with sky blue standards and satiny dark violet falls of as surprising luminosity. The falls are paler towards the dark rusty orange beards, shouldered with amaranth. Numerous ruffled flowers, low-branched stems, excellent foliage and long flowering-in short: a nearly perfect iris that is one of our favourites.
Excellent descendant of "Toile de Jouy"! Bright yellow standards, the falls a paler yellow with a small light brown border. Orange beards extended by a small, feathery, soft yellow spur. Round, well-bodied flowers, good branching, a great many buds (12 on average), ensuring a long flowering period.
A "tall bearded iris", but petite, with only an average of 5 buds but without doubt the most contrasting black-white around today" - so said its creator. Black-purple standards and white falls bordered and peppered with black. Soft blue beards. Rounded shape with almost horizontal falls.
Stunning contrast between the snowy white background and the deep blue violet border on standards and falls. Very large-sized flowers (16 cm x 11 cm) inherited from its mother, 'Rare Quality'. Generous flowering (8 to 9 buds) on very tall stalks with 3 to 4 branches.
Almost red, white and blue... Bluish white standards, broad and round deep blue-violet falls marbled with white, and a final touch: red beards on a white central spot. Tall stems with perfectly shaped flowers. The same quest of a « patriotic » iris on the other side of the Atlantic!
Entirely new: large flowers with pale blue standards and greenish yellow falls. Orange beards. A very unusual contrast similar in style to the standard dwarf "Real Coquette". Very attractive and easy to place in mixed borders. Late and prolific flowering. (9 buds per stem).
Pretty new variety resulting from our research into colour-edged irises. Featuring raised standards of apricot-pink, large falls with rosy-white centres and wide amaranth-toned edges. Thick mandarin beard. Good substance and excellent branching.
Sibling to 'Tapis Rouge' , yet completely different in its so very pleasant pastel tones. Very light pink beige standards framed by wide and ruffled falls of pale lavender pink turning white toward the centre. Light orange beards.
