Iris foetidissima.........for Spritz

Janey

By Janey


Iris foetidissima.........for Spritz (Iris foetidissima (Stinking Iris))

So pleased Spritz advised me to leave the seed pods of this unusual Iris to mature.....
now they are coming into their own, with gorgeous vivid berries.........:o)

Gorgeous colour. I collected some of these from one of our local churchyards but they didn't grow - I wonder what I did wrong?

I love it when it's like this in the pods , trouble here is that the birds set it everywhere and the next year i'm constantly pulling it up .!

Amy, please send your seed-planting birds down here, they are obviously better at it than I am :)

Gee.....if you'd like some berries.....let me know....or a piece of the Iris....it is evergreen and has lovely strap-like leaves all winter............

That's kind, Janey, I'd love either. I do have heavy clay soil so hope they don't mind that.

Gee......if you look at my pics you'll see the Iris in flower.....a bit of a weird one, but the berries make up for it....:o)

Found the flowering one, Janey, and as you say, rather strange but not ugly! The berries and the evergreen leaves certainly make up for it anyway :)
