From the vibrant yellow flag irises to the velvety-purple of I. sibirica ‘Lady Vanessa’ our selection of irises cover most colour palettes. Most are happiest in more moist conditions and so are ideal surrounding garden ponds. Usually considered as a tall plant, we have several varieties that are shorter than 2′ and therefore suitable for smaller gardens. Not to be overlooked, the Inula hookeri grows in similar conditions and flowers later in the season
For 2018 I am pleased to have IRIS foetidissima var.lutescens in stock. The seeds of this variety were from Graham Rice and has lovely buttercup yellow flowers.
