Can we assume, Tetrarch, that you like Iris?? The colours are hard to equal anywhere in the garden, but such a short flowering period!

I do, I do!! I have a new one called Strozzapreti, an handsome Italian..cant wait for it to bloom next year..it has deep rosy pink standards and navy blue falls with a distinct edging (they call it collar) of deep rosy pink around the navy. Its pretty stunning.
The name, would you believe, means "strangle the priest", at least thats what the nursery told me!!

'Strangle the Priest'???? Any Italians to confirm this one?

Yes its true..there is a spaghetti called Strozzapreti.. whether its long enough to strange a priest, or too much would choke a priest, im not sure. But another interpretation is priest choker.
I used to do business in Italy but never came across the pasta.

I think the Italians may have a good sense of humour!
