...The sky is blue! Here is a "must-have" azure jewel for the collector of true blues. Light cerulean blue flowers with exuberant ruffles and broad 11 cm-wide falls. From its parent "Yaquina Blue" it has inherited vigour and a long flowering season with 9 buds and discreet pale yellow beards.
Gracefully shaped flowers with sky blue standards and darker blue-violet plicata markings on ruffled ivory falls. Popular iris, prize-winner several times despite a moderate average count of buds (only 5 to 6).
Standards are a light lilac blue, darker at the base; wide, softly bluish white falls. Remarkable bright white beards tipped in coral-red. An exquisite shape with a number of small and tight ruffles. Moreover, a very soft and attractive fragrance.
Quite innovative in this range: purplish violet standards with lacy edges, falls slightly bolder with a narrow bronze border, old gold beards set against a small white background which lights up the whole flower. Descendant of "Serene Moment". Interesting and late-flowering.
Magnificent very pure sky blue, with small pale yellow beards towards the centre becoming white at their ends. Flowers close to the stem but well spaced and moderately ruffled. Very upright stalks and long-lasting flowers (9 – 10 buds on average). A good grower.
An elegant descendant of the excellent "Crowned Heads". Light blue standards and snow white falls with just a touch of greenish yellow near the sunshine yellow beards. Particularly attractive flowers with little ruffling. Vigorous growth.
Bred from our long lineage of "black and white" iris. White, only slightly toned lavender standards. Falls close to horizontal are of a velvety black with a tiny amethyst edging. The throat is white, striated with crimson surrounding dark orange beards. Quite different from 'Domino Noir'! 7 buds/stalk. (Cayeux seedling 06 117 A)
Inheriting its excellent branching and numerous buds from its father, "Coup de Soleil", a pleasant medium copper-pink, slightly darker on the standards. Tangerine beards. Long flowering season and very vigorous.
Soft, wisteria-blue standards, bluish white round and broad falls, moderately wavy. Beards between red and tangerine. Pretty shape, good branching and 8 to 9 buds on average per stem. Elegant ! (Sowing Cayeux 07 18 A)
Whilst always seeking to be original, one could almost forget these subtle yet useful colours. Deliciously lavender pink with a very thin and discrete lavender beard. Quality branching with 8 buds on average, very prolific.
