I just love the blue/purple colours. They make me happy whenever I look at them. I'm so glad I said yes to the garbage bag full of plants when I had no idea where I would plant so many.
Then, a couple of days ago, I discovered THIS:
Where on earth did that come from? I've had these plants for three years and thought they were all the same variety. Apparently not. This one is a deep, rich purple with golden yellow. Please excuse the iffy photos - it's super windy here today. Not only are these a completely different colour, they are much larger as well - at least twice as large.
These two plants are side by side. See the difference in size? To top it off, I have not one but TWO of these darker irises. I'm pretty excited! I almost dug up all these plants and gave them away this spring. I did dig up a couple, but I'm glad I kept these. A nice surprise!
Thanks for visiting today!
