Very graceful small orange iris of strong substance with large, nearly horizontal falls. The flowers are average-sized, compact and well-proportioned in relation to the plant. The beards are mandarin-toned and the stem carries an average of 7 buds.
New and strange: absinthe yellow to buff yellow standards; almost horizontal falls, absinthe to amber yellow with a hint of light violet below the bronze yellow beards. Prolific plants producing numerous tall stalks with many buds. Strong ruffling.
A well balanced specimen which will brighten up your garden. Slightly roasted, copper-honeyed tone with orange beards. Excellent branching like its predecessor 'Coup de Soleil'. It features an average of 10 buds, with moderately sized flowers resulting in a harmonious balance.
Radiant and sparkling, as was Dominique herself... the colours of this iris have an unforgettable "joie de vivre": pure bright yellow standards, white falls with a wide yellow border creeping towards the centre. Golden yellow beards. Quite rounded flowers with crimped edges like its parent "Just Before Dawn". Quite a short stem but well-branched.
An interesting and attractive combination of two different tones of yellow, each with a touch of green. Standards are a light greenish yellow and falls are buttercup yellow with numerous tight ruffles. Orange beards.
Bright colours for this winner of the Florence iris competition in 2002. Golden-yellow standards with light plum at their base, caramel falls infused with pale violet below the old gold beards. Moderate sized flowers, well shaped and 9 to 10 buds per stalk. Subtle perfume.
Pale mauve wine-coloured standards and rosé-wine falls, lighter than the standards and almost horizontal. Orange-red beards. Firm-bodied flowers slightly waved and free-flowering (8 to 9 buds per stem). Superb branching. Unusual colour between rosé and Bordeaux, very attractive!
Pure bright yellow with a central white stripe on the falls and an orange beard which ends in a feathery white spur. Excellent low branching with 4 stems. The numerous buds: 8 to 10, ensure a long flowering period, late in the season.
Bright garnet red with a discreet light garnet border on the falls. Standards are a bit paler. Rather discreet bronze beards. Excellent stalks with well-distributed branches carrying on average 7 to 8 buds. Appears truly red. (Cayeux seedling 09 69 A)
