Certainly not a champion for number of buds: on average 5 to 6 . However this son of 'Macaron' and 'Ciel Gris sur Poilly' is one of the most surprising. Soft yellow standards and cream toned falls, peppered and edged in purplish red! Yellow beards. Lovely shape. (Cayeux seedling 07 135 A)
What's new in "Cape Perpetua"? Not its colour: light and plain blue with white beards, but its shape: both standards and falls show lacy, frilly edges and this is unique in its category. A really charming blue iris!
We are delighted to name this new unusual bi-colour "Gérard Brière" after the founder of the iris garden Brocéliande in Brittany. Amber-yellow standards, tinted brown at their edge, and blue-violet falls with a large white centre and bright yellow long beards. Multiplies up well, unusual colour.
Graceful flowers with icy white standards and pale lavender violet falls, deeper on the edges. Bright golden beards. Petals amply ruffled and laced strong and vigourous growth, many buds (8 to 10) on a triple-branched stalk.
White standards discreetly infused with amethyst along the edges and lemon yellow toward the heart. White falls with a purplish amethyst brim (1cm wide). Amply waved flowers with discreet pale yellow beards (average of 8 buds). The last one to flower in this year's collection.
As warm as the south of Spain: bright and pure yellow standards and velvety red falls. Extremely clean contrast and exceptionally vigourous. RHS Award of Garden Merit 2006.
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).
Warm butter yellow standards, burgundy red falls lighter around the discreet orange beards. A reliable long-flowerer, it brings a new contrast to the category variegata. Easy to propagate.
Light chocolate standards, flushed blue-lavender. Richer chocolate falls with darker chocolate hafts and blue blaze in the centre. Most original!
