Tall Bearded Iris - a highly scented blue. (Iris germanica (Orris))

Forgot to include this Iris, when it first opened a couple of weeks ago. A nicely shaped Blue with a strong perfume. From my Sister in Law.

No Dd, the one by the front door is Jane Philips, this is in the same border but too far back for its height.

This one is flowering Siris as you say a wonderful scent , I'll try to remember to take a picture later, huge flowers !

Excellent, Simbad, not so tall as Jane Phillips, but nicer shaped flower, and I think the scent is more intense. I'm going to remove the clump of Jane Phillips by the front door and replace with this, when I can get to it.

Yes mine from you has buds about to open! , nice surprise so late in the year :-)

"remontant" a new word to me ...

(of a plant) blooming or producing a crop more than once a season.

Looking good

Yes Gnarly, this one(unknown name, hence 'Scented Blue') has a bud about to open, probably next week (October). I don't expect the scent will be so noticeable in the cold.
