Iris TB Mrs. Andrist

 

By Fryer 1919

Although Mrs. Andrist is registered as a tall bearded iris she is really the size of an intermediate at just 20 inches.  Many of these historic irise

s were shorter back then.  She is an amoena (a color classification) that has pure white standards above purple falls, reticulated with white, including a white edge on the falls.  The beard is sunny yellow.  Share her often as she is a fast grower and also has the bonus of being fragrant.  Originally listed in Mr. Fryer’s catalog from his business, Landsdown Farm, in Mantorville MN, in 1922.

Siberian Iris Gulls Wing

Siberian Iris Gulls Wing

By McGarvey/Wadecamper 1989

Although these gentleman brought this beautiful white Siberian Iris into production I have found references to it being around long before that.  Perhaps hundreds of years.  It is a tall 30 to 36 inches although it can be shorter in poor soil.  It has large lightly ruffled pure white flaring falls on rigid stems.  It blooms a little later than the other Siberian iris and its wider falls make it appear almost like  Japanese iris.  The foliage remains upright and green throughout the summer and turns a beautiful bronze color after frost.  Looks a lot like Snow Queen but it has a little larger flower and is taller.

Iris SDB Tanzanite

By Smith 2009

Neither words nor photos can describe the beauty of this little blue violet iris.  He blooms early and can be 11 inches tall but is shorter for me on sandy soil.  He is very ruffled with falls that are held wide.  The blue violet color intensifies around the snow white beards, where a white eyelash pattern is also seen.  A light spicy fragrance is a bonus.

Iris MTB Joseph’s Coat

By E. Tankesley – 1930

This historic miniature tall bearded iris is a sport of Honorabile. It was originally registered as TB but today is considered MTB. The standards are both white and yellow but are irregularly splotched and streaked, with no two being the same pattern.  The falls too can differ in their color and pattern but are usually splashed with yellow, purple, and red; the coat of many colors. This type of pattern is called a “broken” pattern. The beards are lemon yellow.  It stands about 20 inches tall and is a mid-season bloomer. Although it has been around since the 1930’s it was not introduced until 1989 by A. Katkamier. It is a fast grower and is very hardy. This iris was mixed up while naming in the 30’s with Kaleidoscope.  That one also has a broken pattern but is a little more yellow in general. For this reason you will sometimes see it called Joseph’s coat Katkamier.

Balloon flower – Platycodon grandiflorus

Balloon flower is 2 ½ – 3 feet tall and hardy to zone 3; the balloon flower has blue/violet blooms up and down the stalk and they start out as round puffs that one day pop op

en to show the inside of the flower.  Called Jie-Geng by the Chinese, the roots are edible and have been used in soups and for sore throats, coughs and bronchitis for years.  They have a tap root that makes them hard to transplant when large, but also very drought tolerant.

Aster New England – Symphyotrichum novae-angliae

Symphyotrichum novae-angliae, commonly called New England aster, is a native perennial which is most often found in moist prairies in the eastern half of the US.  It is hardy to zone 4 and heat tolerant to zone 8, and although it is large and needs some space it is not invasive and does fine in the garden.  It grows to 3 to 6 feet and spreads to 2 to 4 feet.  Plant more than one for a real show.  The size depends on the moisture provided and the strain that you have.  Pinching back in July will keep it shorter and delay flowering.  Daisy type flowers with purple rays and yellow centers that are about an inch wide, appear in in abundance in late August and September.  The plant likes full sun and is loved by bees and butterflies. Cut back to the ground in fall to avoid seedlings. The genus name comes from the Greek symph, meaning coming together, and trich, meaning hair; in possible reference to the flower anthers.

Hosta Yellow River

By Eric Smith/Paul Aden/Pete Ruh – 1993

This hosta will form a magnificent clump given time. Reaching 20 inches tall the 13 x 10 inch leaves are topped with 48 inch scapes that have white flowers. The spectacular dark green foliage has a wide yellow margin that develops a more creamy white appearance as the summer heat moves in.  Light shade will keep it looking nice. The leaves are cordate, ribbed and have wavy margins. This Montana sport can reach 4 feet across and, having an upright habit, the long pointed leaves with good substance are stunning.
