Re: Found local source!


Hi Molly

English Charm is an Australian Bred Tall Bearded iris.

It has cream standards and apricot orange falls with a cream edging. It's
very pretty. Also it sometimes reblooms in autumn, especially on alkaline
soils.

Regarding breeding, this article refers to bearded iris

> Hi all!

> I found a local (less than half an hour's drive) Iris breeder. His name is

AIS in

out

bought a

> He also gave me a clump of a small Iris named English Charm. I want to find

> He also breeds Hostas and Daylillies and yes I got lots of those too.

> B) what are Versicolor Iris? He had some and I really didn't grasp what
they

so I
