Iris 'Wonders Never Cease'  No Its Not!!(for my file) (Iris germanica (Orris))

Top pic, 'Wonders Never Cease' photographed at my favourite Iris Supplier's garden. Two bottom pics, bought mail order from a large bulb supplier, nothing like the 1m amoena (white standards) speckled falls. Very disappointing.

Beautiful mix of colours .

Beautiful markings on the true WNCease, but not on my imposter. I am NEVER going to buy anymore Iris at Garden Centres. It is not the GC fault, but I think growers who DUMP excess inferior stock onto the market, maybe siblings of one that got named.

Perhaps they have crossed it with the true one.

How frustrating. This is the trouble I find too with GCs, when you buy plants before they are in flower.

That is why I do like to buy at good old fashioned Nurseries, or specialist suppliers. I have my absolute favourites of those outlets, because of plant quality, provenance and the service.
