We’ve been very pleased with our irises this year. We have many more blossoms than we did last year, and we’re enjoying them every day. They make some of the hard work in the yard worth while.
Cantina has one of the more unusual blossoms among our iris. At first glance it looks purple, but closer inspection shows orange, blue and white in the petals as well. Cantina is in our front flower bed.
Another iris in our front flower bed is Halloween Halo. I guess it gets its name from the yellow trim around the falls and the orange beard. It may not be as showy as some of our other iris, but I like it.
Hemstitched is a pretty blue-and-white iris (even the beard is blue)in our side flower bed. We’ve had this iris for several years.
This yellow-and-white iris, Waltz Across Texas, should be one of Betsy’s favorites since she spent several years in Texas. This iris has waltzed across several of our flower beds.
