...The sky is blue! Here is a "must-have" azure jewel for the collector of true blues. Light cerulean blue flowers with exuberant ruffles and broad 11 cm-wide falls. From its parent "Yaquina Blue" it has inherited vigour and a long flowering season with 9 buds and discreet pale yellow beards.
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.
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.
A most unusual Amoena! Pure white standards and white falls peppered with medium purple especially toward the edges. Bright orange beards surrounded by yellow markings. Tremendously floriferous with an average of 12 buds and 3 branches per stalk. (Duncan 2008)
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.
