Flag Iris - 3rd June 2003

We created the border for flag irises, one of my most favourite plants, after discovering some much neglected rhizomes under the weeds as we cleared the ground for our 'long' borders.  They weren't promising specimens, and so we supplemented them with some new ones.  This gorgeous specimen is one of our purchases in 2002.  The original ones we 'rescued' have finally flowered in their third year; patience as a gardener is often, but not always, rewarded!

We always seem to suffer high winds as soon as these tall flowers open, which can wreak devastation.  We have resorted to supporting each flowering stalk with a cane to keep them standing!
