Extremely tall but sturdy and wind resistant. Pale copper standards, darker towards the edges. Light Amethyst-coloured falls with a fine (2mm) reddish copper brim. Dark copper beards. Wide branching. Late flowering.
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.
This historic variety (a descendent of "Dalmatica") features light to mid tones of lavender, lighter around the white, golden-tipped beards. Flowers are larger than the Iris Pallida's, and quite charming.
From crosses made by Paul Black in Australia. White standards infused with acid yellow at their base, acid yellow falls with a thin white border and fine, clear veining. Orange yellow beards. Sturdy plant, flowers are prettily frilled. (Black 2012)
A very attractive solid light to medium blue with bright tangerine beards. This iris is a descendant of "Princesse Caroline de Monaco" and "Eau Vive", both blue with tangerine coloured beards. Medium sized flowers with a lovely shape. We feel that the pureness of tone compensates for the relatively small number of buds (6-7 on average).
Pink, pink, pink! From two magnificent pink parents: ‘June Krauss’ and ‘Hortensia Rose’ here is a new, intense pink flower with the purest of coral beards. Unfussy, plump flowers. Good foliage and 8 buds per stem on average. (Cayeux seedling 10 276 A)
Faïence de Gien's excellent seedling brother is very elegant but taller. Its exceptional lower branching stalks carry 7 to 8 buds. It features milk-white standards whilst the very wide white falls have lovely violet and purplish black borders (over 2 cm) and are veined with fine lines of the same colour which run parallel to the golden yellow beards.
Soft lemon yellow standards, more intense at their base, white to cream falls with a wide deep violet-blue border, spreading towards the centre. Pale orange beards edged with yellow. The numerous flowers (up to 11) are enlivened by regularly-spaced waved edges and the stalks are perfectly branched. One of the best, if not the best, of this combination of colours.
Soft lavender standards and white falls tinted very pale pinkish lavender, contrasted against the bright tangerine beards. An iris with lots of finesse and great style! Very ruffled flowers, 8 to 9 buds per stem. Vigorous grower with good resistance to disease.
Wonderfully lively and salmon-pink standards framed by creamy pink, nearly horizontal falls with amethyst borders (over 5 to 7 mm). Long and thick coral-red beards ending in spurs of the same colour but which light up the pink of the falls. These truly inimitable lively tones will please those who are looking for a touch of brightness.
