Tetra....this is a beautiful colour. Until you posted photos I had no idea that iris grew in more than purple and white. I have a lot to learn!!

This is an amazing colour. Something like this would be great in my 'hot' bed. I shall go and have a look right now! ha ha!

Another lovely one, a bit earlier I think..maybe intermediate..is Blazing Sunrise Karen. Should find a pic of that in my garden too I believe.

I did go on Cayeux to look, and a few other sites too. However, with my soil conditions I decided to go for a Hemerocallis (Frans Hals, red and orange) and a Geum (Rivale, Leonard's Variety) and another Geum (Beech House Apricot). The soil just stays far too wet in winter for bearded Iris. It's a shame as they are one of my favourite plants, but there you go.

Btw, there is an Erysium that is all orange...lasts all summer long and you can take cuttings ..it can get woody in second season..I will post a picture.

Hmmm...not a fan generally ...for the reason of the woodiness mostly. However, your photo may persuade me. I am trying to go for peachy, rather than orange as I find orange a little bit toooooooo hot! Peachy and burgundy reds...that will be nice. I have a very bright red climber on the arch now...Dortmund. And Warm Welcome on the fence with Photinia. So there will be bright warmth there.
