    • Like her name sake, this one is extremely hardy. She is only grown under-cover to protect the flowers from the winter storms. Always a delight and no trouble at all – although the leaves are very attractive to aphids, but this seems to be a problem with so many iris.

  1. What a beautiful shade of blue! I keep wandering around the garden of a morning, hoping my reticulatas have decided they can grow in the desert (and bloom). If so, I might need to extend the iris collection 😉 Your LBS is just lovely!

    • Hello, sorry I’ve just found you imprisoned in the spam. We obviously both garden at the extremes, but it is interesting to see what you can grow in difficult conditions. Many of the iris grow in fairly harsh conditions in Iran and Turkey and you’d probably have no trouble giving them a hot dry summer. So I wish you well and hope to see some more of your flowering bulbs.

      • Thanks so much for rescuing my comment; I disappear much too often on WP blogs these days, and usually without much chance of reemerging!
        I do find myself encouraged by watching other gardeners dealing with other extreme climates and certainly hope to see more of your garden!
