Thanks for your comments. I found out it again for the role of fern to show flowers off.

Tsuyoshi, this is beautiful. How much sun does this area get. I have lots of ferns and this iris would look wonderful with them

Together they both grow in beauty.

Hi Mageth, It gets sun for 6 to 7 hours in summer, and doesnt any time in winter, but no problem you know.

Hi Nelke, Yes, they both are most showy in April.

HI Pamd, Surely, show it off well, but your Iris in itself is much more beautiful than mine.
