    Hi Helen, thanks for a lovely photo.
    It’s a plant I’d never heard of until a couple of weeks ago when I went to Georgie Newbery’s talk at the Garden Museum and she had some stems there. It’s a really interesting colour and I think I remember it having a gentle scent too. Did you get yours from Avon?

      Hi Jen
      It’s not mine it’s at Stocktonbury Gardens. I had only seen photos of the flowers before and hadn’t realised the foliage was so grass like

      Hi Yvonne
      It is indeed

  3. I see your new camera is doing a fine job – that’s a fine shot.

    Such an oddly wonderful twist on the concept of Iris.
