    • Hi Jane
      He is rather nice isnt he. I think he is a little paler than Katherine Hodgkins

  1. Frank looks like a most refined gentleman companion for Katharyn H and Lady Beatrix. I think that growing him in a container shows him off better than if he were planted directly in the garden.

  2. Beautiful. I have Katharine Hodgkin and Sheila Ann Germaney and now I am going to have Frank too. Do you know his parentage?

    • Hi Chloris
      I think it’s similar to Katherine hodgkins. I bought it from Peter Nyssens

  3. Iris ‘Frank Elder ‘ is indeed paler than ‘Katharine Hodgkin’ they, and ‘Sheila Ann Germaney’ are all Iris winogradowii x Iris histrioides .
