Iris Love.

Iris. Probably my favorite flower. I received bulbs from two friends last fall. Yellow and purple was what I recall. Below is what came up! Still my heart...gorgeous. These little beauties were only 2 by 2 inches. These wonderful monsters were closer to 4 or 5 inches. I've seen the yellow bearded before but never these blue/purple striped ones. Whoa.
At one point there were 3 blooming on the same stem. I'm still in awe.

The only downside is they never last very long. A few days tops and then they're gone. I've the chance to attain some cranberry wine colored ones for next year. The thought makes me giddy. Iris love, I've got it bad.
