Of course we cannot forget to comment on our significant display of fifty species and cultivars of heirloom iris.* The earliest, Swertii, dates back to 1612. Others include Amoena (1812), Bridesmaid, bearing pale, silvery lavender flowers, Edina (1840), Kashmiriana (1877), and Mrs. Neubronner (1898) known for its deep, golden-yellow flowers.  This season we anticipated adding rhizomes of Mexicana (pre 1859), Innocenze (1854), Khaput (1895) and Fries Morel (1840).
