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.
Had I to choose a favourite among my hybrids for 2018, it would no doubt be this one! A unique 2-toned red: medium brownish red standards that lighten a bit over time. Dark Burgundy red falls, lighter along the edges. Exceptional shape and branching with an average of 8 buds. Beards are medium brown. (Cayeux seedling 06 33 A)
Peach pink standards turning to golden yellow on their edges. White falls with a precise and narrow yellow rim, bright orange beards. Plenty of small flowers, moderatly ruffled. Very vigourous, quickly forming into good clumps.
Superb apricot, slightly rosy at the centre of the standards and marginally paler under the beards. Strong flowers have very ruffled edges and the beards are between tangerine and red. Exemplary branching with an average of 9 to 10 buds.
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.
Bright orange standards with bright yellow falls bordered by vivid orange, held close to the horizontal. Flowers have pronounced wavy edges. Mandarin beards. Fairly compact stems, numerous buds: 10 to 12. (Aitken 2003).
Difficult to describe the colours hover between plain pink amaranthe and light raspberry red, becoming paler under the tangerine beards. Good-sized, wonderfully shaped flowers with ruffled edges. Exemplary stalks bearing 9 to 10 buds on average.
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.
Burgundy red standards, red falls turning almost black towards their edges and nicely bordered by 4 mm of light red. Honey beards surrounded by white streaks. Beautiful branching, 8 to 9 buds (Cayeux sowing 11 146 A).
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!
