Tall Bearded Iris Damaged

Tall Bearded Iris Damaged (Iris germanica (Orris))

What a beautiful cross. The only one of this batch to flower. Unfortunately after all this rain it had rotted at the neck and came out in my hand! Next year will the others have this same colouration?

It looks like a cat wearing a fancy hat!

I had to look long and hard to see a cat, now I see, just the centre and it's got a little black beard. That has cheered me up, having lost it.

Lo, the cat's face was the first thing I saw! Waht a dreadful shame that you lost it - its so unusual. Can you remember the cross?

Yes, Stera, I have another 6 of the same cross in the ground. Redoing the cross would be another 3 years though. Actually the parents are still flowering, could do it again shortly before they have finished, IF it's not raining again.
