Lilac and Purple Iris

Lilac and Purple Iris (Tall Bearded Iris)

Tall Bearded Iris from 2014 seed. Lilac Standards with purple falls and a yellow beard. The colour purple is difficult to photograph accurately. It is growing behind a pergola with Clematis 'Josephine' twinning up it, which coincidentally turns out to be a pleasing combination. Probably keep and leave this cross in this position.
