Tall Bearded Irises


By Siris

Tall Bearded Irises (Iris germanica (Orris))

I think the dual blue might be called Best Bet, the brown one is one of my crosses with Sultan's Palace as the pod parent. I call it Chameleon.

You must be pleased with the cross as I prefer this rather than "Sultans Palace " maroon red colour, and the blue is very pretty

I also got a ginger one from the Sultan's Palace cross, not open yet. Unfortunately Chameleon fades if the sun is very hot as today.
