I used to grow bearded irises in my garden in Hants, but here in North Devon, no chance. They're beautiful Lisa.
Lovely iris collection.
Lovely pics, beautiful colours.
Whats the flower in the 4th pic?
lily, No 4 is nectaroscordum siculum.
Wow! Beautiful irises. I love the chocolate coloured one - I couldn't think of an appropriate word to describe the colour. What is it? It's lovely.
Thank you Hostafan
The brown one is 'Kent pride'.
Fantastic! I love our irises, but they need some serious attention before they will look like yours - going to divide as soon as they have finished flowering, cos they are all clogged up. You have inspired me to collect a few more!
I'll be splitting them and clearing their bed this year for the first time, I'm a bit nervous about doing it but some of the older ones are getting congested. They are so tall this year, the white ones are 4 foot and have survived the wind. I'd like a really strong red but will have to do a bit of research as to where to get one.
