Iris foetidissima


By Meanie

Iris foetidissima (Iris foetidissima (Stinking Iris))

Considered a weed by many I like them and allow them to self seed as the colour variations are interesting.

I've had them in my last three gardens. The seedlings are easily spotted, pricked out and grown on in pots until they flower. I can then keep the better ones - in my last garden I had one with this colour lower petals and an almost gold coloured standard.

I'm getting increasingly interested in them Amy, especially the Australian and South African members of the family.
