Moment of Glory for the Iris

 Iris hollandica 'Eye of the Tiger'

I'm not a big iris fan. They have roots and rhizomes that sit at the top of the soil making them hard to weed and susceptible to damage. They can get iris root bore. But then they flower and, wow, I get a little soft spot for them. How can you not love this?

Iris hollandica 'Bronze Beauty'

The iris have just started to flower at Taltree.  Come out soon to see the show with this hot weather they will only be at their peak for 10 days or so.
