Blue Suede Shoes

No, not my preferred footwear when gardening but another Iris I bought from Cayeux while at the Courson plant fair last autumn.

For its first year it produced just one stem, nothing very special about that except that to begin it had 5 flowers open at the same time, spectacular, I was imagining future years when with more stems it would be amazing especially planted near the paler blue I. Jane Philips; the flowers dies back, again no surprise there but then and this, to me, was astounding it produced another 6 or seven flowers again all open at the same time!

I am so happy I bought this Iris.

Is there a purchase you’re particularly pleased with?

Don’t forget Garden Bloggers Foliage Day (GBFD) on the 22nd.  I know you all have so many flowers at the moment you’re not thinking about the foliage but if you do, I think you might be surprised.
