Late season Iris

I had not appreciated how varied Irises can be, not just in terms of colour and petal form, but also growth habit and flowering time. This group of late flowering irises are rather pleasing, arriving at a time when the first rush of May blooms is starting to relent: Iris 'Riverboat Blues' with darker Iris 'Indigo Princess' behind. I bought a selection of irises produced by specialist grower Giardini Toscani in Cosentino, near Arezzo. Sadly the labels have been lost so I have had to search the on-line catalogue to remind myself of their names: Giardini Toscani   Y
