Bearded Iris germanica- In the Red


By siris


Here are some of the reds I have in my garden.
Action Front – am sure it is as named. 2 toned red with haft markings.

2 tone red, no haft markings given to me by J along the road.

My ( Q. not supreme sultan) very dark, very tall mahogany red, no haft markings.

Solid mahogany (think I’ve been s haft ed!) deep mahogany red with haft markings.

Sultan’ Palace (I think) a self with no haft markings. Used this clump to produce Siris seedlings 1 & 2 , but they are not red!

Confused, Enough is enough.

Thanks Steragram and Stroller,
But I prefer Solid Mahogany, it's such a deep colour.
