Tall Bearded Iris 'Lullaby of Spring'


By Siris

Tall Bearded Iris 'Lullaby of Spring' (Iris germanica (Orris))

Tall bearded Iris 'Lullaby of Spring' just does not bulk up for me. This is only the 3rd time it has flowered in 15 years. I keep saying I will get rid of it, but just look at that subtle flower!

Klahanie, when I see it in flower, say, well I'll keep, when it is just sitting there, 1 rhizome not even a clump, I think, waste of space.
Gg, yes, I did see Monty Don, he must have put a sack of grit in that hole, I tend to keep the stones from around the garden, for the top of my Iris bed, you don't get much grit for you £s in a sack.
Raining here too, no pollinating today.
