    • Hi Sue
      This is a recent acquisition and I have brought it indoors so I can enjoy its flowers. I have to say I am surprised at how long the flowers have stayed open in the warm house

  1. Beautiful. I saw this one last year at one of the RHS shows and noticed a lovely scent when I was trying to photograph it, your greenhouse must smell wonderful!

  2. Amazing how much colour and beauty can be in one small pot in early February.

  3. A beauty. Beatrix must have been a most special woman to have both an iris and a snowdrop named after her.

    • Hi Anna
      I believe she went in plant hunting trips with EA Bowles
