Well, considering it's been half eaten it doesn't look too bad. It has a lot of potential and I like the purple markings in the centre. Next year I'll have to keep a closer eye on those pesky slugs 😑 #iris #iris-reticulata #irisreticulataorangeglow

Oh yes! 😀🐯 - maybe they could have called it 'Tiger' - coincidently had an email from the breeder in Canada, Alan McMurtrie (via the bulb specialist that I got these from) in connection with one of my others that I had a query on. He is doing some great work on breeding new colour combinations and has some amazing results - if you are interested in following his work, I would definitely recommend a visit to his website - he has a photo gallery of so many new and as yet unnamed hybrids

Frosty morning! ❄️ Another #iris-reticulata getting to bloom. Although I think something has been munching on the developing bud 😑 - hope it doesn't look too distorted when it opens #iris #frost #munchies #buds #irisreticulataorangeglow
