Gardening in mostly deep shade in Zone 6. My passion is adding more native plants to my landscape & clearing out the foreign invasives.

Iris x germanica

This is why I loathe having a lawn crew. They seem determined to destroy everything I am trying to keep alive.

Oh dear… But at least the Irises will recover.

You know your native plantings are starting to pay off when you see the first grasshopper ever in your yard, AND IT'S AS LONG AS YOUR THUMB. #wildlifewednesday #exoskeletal

I would love to know the name of this #fragrant iris. They came with the place.

I have ruled out "Best Bet" @KariSamuel because that one is not fragrant, among other reasons 🤔
