From Pennsylvania to Georgia



My friend and neighbor Catherine grew up in Pennsylvania, where her mother's green thumb was much in evidence. Now a Southerner, Catherine has planted gardens at all the houses where she and her husband have lived over the past 20+ years - often with cuttings, seeds or fully grown plants from her mother's garden. Her collection of Bearded Irises, many of which have their origins in Pennsylvania, including this one, is stunning and without equal in our neighborhood of some 700 homes.

I love the bold solid colors of this iris. It can create such drama in a garden.

I adore bearded iris in many colours. This is lovely.
