Well this is not the variety I ordered, but I’m loving it anyway! First of the reticulated Iris to flower in my new polytunnel bulb beds. And what a handsome one at that! 💜💙 #iris #irisreticulata #iris-reticulata #irisreticulataregal - it was supposed to be a replacement for one called orange glow but whenever I’ve got incorrectly sent bulbs from this particular specialist I use, I always get something quite new and unusual! So no complaints 😄

And loving those central white stripes! Quite unusual to see that on the purple ones which usually have a solid colour

It is @patrik94 😍 - at first when it emerged I was a little disappointed as it wasn’t the orange I had hoped but then as it fully opened I realised it was a little special

Thank you John! It’s actually my second Iris to open in these new bulb beds, both started to come out on Christmas Day. The other one is a little slower to fully open but is also different to what I was expecting. Bit harder to identify that one right now but will post a picture shortly @johninbrighton
