Space Age Iris 'Chanson De Geste' (For my File)


By Siris

Space Age Iris 'Chanson De Geste' (For my File) (Iris germanica (Orris))

Tall Bearded Space Age Iris 'Chanson De Geste'. The beard extensions are 2 Spoons and 1 Horn. It is not a good feature to have different types of extension on the same flower, but I like the colour.

Full of holes now from the hail storm.

I have not seen this detail on an iris before.

Had a lot of trouble with slugs this may eating the plants as they were just getting started. Lost some new ones before they had a chance to bud.

Chanson is my favourite this year, lovely colours and a delicious scent.
Slugs ruined new French Cancan two years ago straight after planting, that's why I bought Celebration Song (similar colour) but I left it and a new knob on the rhizome sprouted the following year, then flowered this, so patience is a virtue. (Wouldn't leave a rotted one in the ground though)
