Iris unguicularis.

12 November 2017 13:09:25

Every year at this time I upload a photo of this Iris which will flower from now until late February early March. I have three varieties of this sweet little flower and this year they are being joined by a white variety. The varieties in the photo are Iris unguicularis 'Mary Bernard' and the pale coloured one is Iris unguicularis 'Walter Butt'.

The more I see the late-early irises the more I like them.

They're really beautiful.

Lovely flowers, Mary.  You have cut these.  How long do they last in a vase?

Margot, they will only last for two days and I pick them in bud as the slugs and snails love them despite growing them on a raised gravel bed. The plants themselves produce flowers most days throughout the winter.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments.

Very pretty. And it's great that they last so long.
