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 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.


Daylily Love You

By Webster 1984

Love you is a very pale pink, near white in color, with lightly ruffled edges and a cream colored mid rib.  What makes it a standout is the intense green throat that spreads into a chartreuse halo.  The plant is a dormant tetraploid.  It blooms mid-season and is very fragrant.  On a side note; there are many daylilies with Love You in the name that are different than this plant.  Love You is a good one for the moon garden.



Daylily Huckleberry Candy

By Stamile 1998

Huckleberry Candy is much like the others in the Candy series.  It is a dormant tetraploid that is 20 inches tall, with a 4.25 inch flower, that blooms early to mid-season.  It is cream to light peach with a violet blue watermark that spreads into a fuchsia eyezone above a chartreuse throat.  Prominent cream colored mid ribs, a lightly ruffled edge and diamond dusting complete the picture.

Daylily Dad’s Best White

By Viette 1984

This one really is pretty white, with a light ruffle.  If anything maybe a hint of green, or perhaps a reflection of the green throat.  A mid-season blooming dormant, diploid; it is 28 inches tall.  Usually it starts blooming on Father’s Day.  It is listed at 6 inches, but is really more like a little over 5 for me; bright clean star shaped flowers.


Daylily Artic Snow

By Stamile 1985

This ivory beauty has a green throat and light ruffles.  She is a staple in the moon garden.  She has an extended bloom period which means blooms last into the evening.  A dormant tetraploid; this 23 inch tall plant has 5 1/2 inch blooms.  It is list

ed as ivory but really it depends on the light sometimes it looks pale yellow and sometimes pale pink.  It really stands out in the dark, with contrasting black anthers.

Siberian Iris Butter and Sugar

By McEwen 

Iris Siberian Butter and Sugar

A historic iris, being the first of its kind – a yellow siberian.

This Siberian iris has creamy white standards and butter yellow falls. They are about 28 inches tall and bloom like crazy in between the time when the bearded iris and the daylillies are blooming. They enjoy moist soil but will do fine in a garden setting. Hardy to zone 3 they are attractive to butterflies but resistant to deer and rabbits and will mature to a large flowering clump in a few years.


Daylily Sunday Gloves

By LeBegue-Rogers – 1985

Daylily Sunday Gloves

This delicate beauty is the whitest in my garden. The 5.25 inch blooms are fragrant, lightly ruffled and have a pale yellow throat. They have extended bloom which means that they are perfect for your moon garden.

The 27 inch dormant diploid is an early midseason bloomer.

Daylily Seedling Bad Bud White

Unregistered Seedling

Daylily seedling Bad Bud White

I got this plant long ago from an auction at the Green Bay Botanical Garden. I’m not sure if it was hybridized in a program at the garden or if it was hybridized by one of the “Bad Buds” (Bad=Bay Area Daylily). The seedling number that came with the plant is #0970.

She is 30 inches tall with 5 inch near white blooms. They lean towards a very light pink with a light yellow throat. Light ruffling completes them.


Iris Boo

By Markham – 1971

They don’t come any cuter than Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris “Boo”.  She doesn’t get any taller than 12 inches.  An amoena, which means that the standards are white and the falls are colored. In this case there is a crescent shaped purple spot on the falls with detailed veining and penciling near the beards, which are yellow. This cutie won the award of merit in 1976. They are early bloomers and you may want to get down close to smell the sweet fragrance.
