|Heritage iris and culinary herb raised bed|
Caprice. The photograph color is not the same as the flower. In person is is more of a rosy red, not so blue. Nice sweet fragrance. In the literature this is described as a grape fragrance. That is not far off from reality.
Quaker Lady. Also a nice sweet fragrance, floral.
Pallida dalmatica. Also, sweet grape - like fragrance. Sweeter than grapes.
Sold as Honorabile but Historic Iris Preservation Society states most likely Sans Souci. No fragrance, which I knew when I ordered this variety. I liked the appearance, and in person it is better than I anticipated. Ideal little iris for this bed. I don't know what I should call it, but leaning towards Sans Souci, since that is probably the right name.
Flavescens. Also unscented, and also ideal for this bed.
Helen Collingwood. I think I already posted that so will hold off doing so again. Also nice floral fragrance.
Iris/herb bed #2 is also coming along nicely. Both got a dusting of crushed eggshells this weekend for calcium.
