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.
Bright pink standards with slight purple hues on the edges; pale pink falls with a wide magenta-coloured brim. Coral red beards lengthened by a lovely magenta «spoon». A spectacular, well branched «space-age» iris much appreciated by our visitors.(8 buds on average)
This descendant of 'Above The Clouds' is definitely one of the best intense medium blue irises, if not the best , because it is so truly blue! Its imposing flowers (falls are 12cm wide) in good proportion with the tall sta lks, are firm and strongly ruffled.
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.
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.
The cross "Chevalier de Malte" with "Conjuration" has given us many good seedlings, "Aurélie" is one of them. It has white standards with lavender on their edges and flaring purple-violet falls with a large white centre. The thick red beard ends in a white spur. Well-branched stalks. Winner at the Florence iris competition in 2007.
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.
From crosses made by Paul Black in Australia. White standards infused with acid yellow at their base, acid yellow falls with a thin white border and fine, clear veining. Orange yellow beards. Sturdy plant, flowers are prettily frilled. (Black 2012)
