Fall Blooming Bearded Iris
This was an interesting find. Last summer I moved some bearded irises from the Vancouver place to the Battleground place. I haven't kept up with weeding or watering them. Today I noted one is blooming. The variety is "Liaison". Behind it is Buddleia "Lilac Haze" and Sedum "Autumn Joy"
Bearded Iris "Liaison"
The leaves look a bit unhappy. It's an unusual time to bloom. We are at the start of rainy season.
