Though it is not one of the most original iris, it is certainly one of the most refined. It has white standards and almost horizontal falls, white with a neat and thin deep blue edge. Orange beards, ending clear yellow. Gracefully ruffled.
A cheerfully coloured Plicata. Medium sized flowers with intense pink standards. Falls feature a creamy white background enhanced by a wide raspberry border and a raspberry middle line extending from the copper tipped beards. Lengthened flowering season. 7 buds. (Cayeux seedling 10 98 C)
This new and luscious combination carries numerous elegantly ruffled flowers (11 on average) which feature medium-sized standards. The nearly horizontals falls of amaranth, with borders which turn to a light pink copper tone, are nicely echoed by bronze-coloured beards. We are pleased to have named this exquisite variety in memory of Madame Tardivier, former director of the Jardins des Tuileries at the Louvre.
Belongs to the category of "miniature tall beardeds", a sort of bonsai but quite beautiful. Pure white standards and purple to black falls with a fine white border. The yellow beards are surround by purplish black striations. Most interesting!
Buff-coloured standards with a hint of peach. Falls with a white background edged in the same colour as the standards but peppered light brown to cinnamon. Red-orange beards prolonged with a fine cinnamon toned line. Stands tall with ruffled flowers.
Creamy pink standards. Cool rose-pink and laced falls with deep orange beards. Perfectly shaped flowers and a good grower.
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).
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.
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.
