Thanks Carol it is a vivid blue, I have mixed feelings about Iris, like the colours and markings but always seem so stiff and formal to me!

I've got some mixed iris in a pot growing, but no way near to flower....

I know what you mean about Iris. PP...
but this one has lovely shades of blue..

Thanks Terra, maybe if it was in a pot I would appreciate it more, looks lost in the soil!

More than I've got, PP, and what a brilliant colour. I bought 40 iris bulbs (supposed to flower June-September) from our Pound shop last week. and have popped them in pots around the garden and a few in the greenhouse. Fingers crossed they grow :)

Thanks BB, but would you believe it I went out today to take another peep at it and its completely disappeared! not a trace, do you think someone loved it so much it devoured it?

Oh no!!! This is too bad, Pp :-((

Have never heard of birds going for anything but yellow before, but can't think of any other culprit, unless the slugs/snails are out and about?

Its gorgeous and a wonderful photo too, yes slugs and snails like them I can vouch for that as they ate my bigger ones last year.

That is a terrible shame, PP! Such a beautiful flower but gone overnight!

I have some Dutch Irises that come up every year but they are only white! They were a mixed batch of bulbs when I planted them 4 or 5 years ago but the other colours seem to have died out! Most unusual!!!
