Four More Iris (Iris germanica (Orris))

All Tall Bearded Iris, named varieties, except the last which was sold as Supreme Sultan, which it is not, (so I call it Rogue Red)

I only have 2 plants with Sultan's Palace used as the mother, none with it providing the pollen as far as I know. You would have to ask my bees if they know otherwise.

Such wonderful colours hard to choose a favourite.

3pb, 'Boss Tweed' is a brown colour. Last year the blue zone near the beard was much more pronounced. Weather related variation? Hated Rogue Red when it first flowered, several years ago, because it was really a dull red, but with all the rain this last week it has brightened the colour, or washed off all the dust!

I am pleased you like the Rogue Red now I think its lively seems to have a tinge of orange to it.

Orange beard, but blue tinge to the petals. I think the Pyracantha behind is setting it off nicely.

Yes the blue too yes the Pyracantha does set it off nicely.
