Example text

And here’s full disclosure: I hope to cultivate nothing less than an all-out obsession in you by the time you close its cover. More than ever in the 21st century, gardeners demand that their gardens look and feel like them, with plants that express their character and sense of style. Gardens should teem with our favorite plants. Mine teems with bearded irises, and with any luck yours does (or will) too. Bearded irises are a part of our horticultural heritage, grown throughout the world for a millennium and revered for their inarguable place of honor at the colorful table that is spring.

The “poor man’s orchid,” as it was often called, crept into gardens of all shapes and sizes from continent to continent and coast to coast. Some still grow where gardens once were, making do amid tall grass and weeds — a testament to their durability. But I wonder if said durability has demoted bearded irises, in the minds of some, to a lowlier, commoner’s rank? Growing up as a bright-eyed iris lover, I got the feeling that some iris lovers hated the idea of mixing it up, planting their beloved treasures in the company of non-irises.

Colors in standards, falls, and beards morphed, evolved, blended — and were lost. On that note, it’s probably best to simply run through the main colors of the rainbow, adding in tones, shades, and hues along the way. Put on your sunglasses, color is about to hit the page. ‘Smooth’ (Craig 2004) ‘Play With Fire’ (Schreiner 1987) Red So-called spectrum red is the most elusive and sought-after color in the bearded iris firmament. To breeders caught up in a colorful crusade for floral epithets of fire engines and candied apples, red isn’t just red — it’s the pursuit of 43A on the RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Colour Chart.
