Iris Ensata Greywoods Catrina

By Darlyn Wilkinson – 2002

This lovely statement plant has slender green grass-like leaves that add instant architecture to any garden. It blooms in mid-summer in-between the tall bearded iris and daylilies. Clean white, signals with yellow markings and a basal greenish cast, rose violet veins radiating from a deeper rose area surrounding the signals. Spectacular; also known as Japanese iris, its flowers have a distinctively flattened appearance. Spreads by rhizome; deer resistant and hardy to 0°F. Requires full sun and regular watering while blooming, prefers less water after flowering. Great at the ponds edge or even in standing spring water but does fine in standard garden soil if watered. Registered at 35 inches but will be shorter if dry and taller if very wet.

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.
