Iris reticulata 'Harmony'

4th February 2007

A dark form gently tickled with purple. It has been described (by someone trying to sell it) as 'sky blue' . I don't know whose sky was involved, but I suspect that this is evidence of alien colonisation of the planet. For me, the most significant feature is the size and substance of the flower. The diameter is about the same as all the others, but the individual parts are broader, so there is more petal and less space.
'Harmony' presumably because 'We come in peace...'?
