Another Bearded Iris

The blue one (all blue) is still not in bloom, but isn't this pink-and-blue one spectacular? I should keep better records of the names of my Bearded Irises. This one, I thought, was "Beverly Sills", but I've just realized that is the all-pink one (see May 3 post). Well, more important than the name is the show they put on in my garden. Imagine - just a few years ago, I thought Bearded Irises were old-fashioned has-beens. Now, I love them!

Lya, This bearded Iris is stunning! Love the two colors!!! Truly Breathtaking. I have a deep deep purple one blooming right now, one of my mothers I brought back two years ago. You'd love it! Stop by if you get a chance to check it out if you're near the next day or so. I sent you an email about setting up a tea time soon! ;) ~CC Catherine

Can't wait to see it! These are really remarkable plants and I don't know why it took me so long to figure it out.
