Really lovely flower. Beautiful markings.

lovely flowers but the leaves seem to over shadow them dont you think GT, still lovely

Thank you. :-)

The plant is really large, so even this 4inch flower looks tiny next to it. Not terribly attractive foliage, but they can overshadow it. The whole process is fascinating to me, and the markings so distinctive.

wouldnt have thought the flower was 4inch GT so just shows how large the plant is, yes lovely markings :o))

From leaf tip to baby almost spans 7feet! upright it stands about 5ft. It is really large. The flower is a tad smaller than a traditional iris.

Thank you PG. Did not expect to post until next year. This is a real joy.

The Neomarica stays inside San. I have it on a corner shelf where it is out of the way and has plenty of space. Ready for a repot soon I think.
