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.

Iris Cristata – Dwarf Crested

This darling little iris is a native plant hardy in zone 3 to 9. Iris Cristata is commonly called Dwarf Crested Iris.

Iris Cristata

They are pale blue with gold crested falls and bloom in May here in Wisconsin. They are actually found more commonly further east and south but grow fine in other parts of the country.

They do fine in sun or dappled shade and are tolerant of both wet and dry soil. They will naturalize via shallow rhizomes, kind of like a strawberry. Not bothered by deer and rabbits.

The size of these iris can vary. Some hybrid varieties can be up to 8 inches tall or more. The type that we have here are quite small, about 4 inches, with one inch, blue violet flowers.

This Siberian iris has violet/pink flowers that are larger than the species.

They start blooming in June here in Wisconsin and are held above the attractive grass like foliage, at just under 3 feet.  Mature clumps can be 3 feet across and are loved by butterflies and not attractive to deer and rabbits. 

They will tolerate both overly wet and overly dry soil, but love moist fertile soil and plenty of sun. Siberian Iris have no serious pests.

Iris Intermediate Loreley

By Goos and Koenemann -1906

This historic iris was registered as a TB but is now considered IB. It is really hardy and thrives on neglect. The name comes from the siren of the Rhine who with her song enchanted sailors and lured them to their death.

The standards are a glowing yellow while the falls are a velvety violet with distinct white and yellow veining and butter yellow edges. The beard is lemon yellow.

This plant is a vigorous grower with healthy foliage tinged at the base. Also a heavy bloomer. Cheerful!!

By De Candolle – 1813

Iris Flavescens

This historic tall bearded iris originally appeared in the 1910 Biltmore Nurseries catalog. It is a wild collected variety that is thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid. It was however once thought to be a separate species. A vigorous grower which flowers well and will persist even if not cared for. It is 30 inches tall. 

Falls and standards are pale yellow with light olive veining while it seems to glow with a more buttery yellow inside. It has lemon yellow beards and it is also fragrant!
