Tall Bearded Iris

Iris spp germanica originally from Central and southern Europe.

This elegant flower blooms in many colours with the blue ones being my personal favourites. It is a user friendly plant, easy to establish and requires minimum maintenance. It is extremely drought tolerant so it is good for areas with little summer rain and does need plenty of sunshine to bloom well.
Here it is blooming in a large clump at a friends house..... how wonderful it will be when it is fully established at ours.
Iris from the Family Iridaceae
