Iris Eleanor Roosevelt

Iris Eleanor Roosevelt

This intermediate bearded iris is dark violet blue with white beards, we call it electric blue.

She is a Historic Iris that is about 20” tall and, wow; she is very reliable, vigorous, prolific and hardy. The stems don’t tip like some of the taller ones do. She is one of the first to bloom, in May, and then does some re-blooming during the rest of the iris season.

Awards: Honorable Mention 1936, Award of Merit 1937.
