The Beautiful Beverly Sills (pics)

This iris does not fit my garden color scheme one bit, but it is so lovely and floriferous that I have to have it in a place of honor. It bloomed this spring, but not all that well, then this week it rebloomed bonkers. Here are some photos from today, spring, and previous years.

What a lovely clump, it looks so good. I had an opportunity to buy Bev this spring, but passed it up because I have a few pinks already. If I had realized how ruffled & nice this one is, I would have snapped it up. The picture wasn't nearly as nice as yours.

I love the form, ngraham, nicely flared with a teeny bit of lace and ruffle. I bought Alice Goodman at the same time and Beverly won the contest. Alice lives at my mom's now. There are rufflier warm pinks, but I doubt any can beat this one's frequency and abundance of bloom.

I like the way you painted your "tuteur", I have the same one and I'm feeling inspired...

Thanks, Jason.
Chad, the tuteur came that color. It's very nice, especially in the fall and winter when there is very little green in the flower garden. I regret not buying more of them, since they are a pain in the patootie to build.

What a show. Mine bloomed pinker this year than I've ever seen it.
