The garden junos are now peeking above the soil but it is in the pot collection that the main display is starting! The flowers may be lasting but the light is dreadful for photography!
Iris rosenbachina is understandably very popular and quite variable. Here are three fine examples.....
The 'Varzob' clone was the first juno to flower this year, seen here on 4th Feb.
The 'Harangon' clone is widely available and first flower opened fully today.
I don't know whether this next Iris rosenbachiana should have a clonal name - it was meant to be the red purple Tovil dara clone but it's one of the nicest I've grown with lovely rich colours! Never complain!!!!
A touch of the blues from Iris willmottiana, a seed raised example.
