I love this iris! I must find a good place for it.

Here it is with 'Sweeter Than Honey' and 'Soap Opera' in my overflow bed (formerly known as the veggie garden).

Love those colors on 'Scottish Reel'! Is its bloom that smaller than 'Sweeter Than Honey'. Or a trick of the camera?

Is Soap Opera in the rear?

Nice show Hosenemesis!

Yes, it is a normal sized iris, and Soap Opera is a bit small. Sweeter than Honey is huge. It's probably the biggest flower I have grown- bigger than Persian Berry or Recurring Dream.

That is so striking, I love that one. I have Soap Opera, although it didn't bloom last year. Never has multiplied as well as I would like & seems to only bloom every other year. I do love the color though.

Haha! My vegetable garden has gotten smaller too! I'm considering taking over one of the raised beds next.. I just counted 20 in containers from last summer's sale that I still need to find places for.
Beautiful colors on Scottish Reel..
