This is a newly purchased and planted last fall iris for me. I love the coral-peach-tangerine tones in an iris. Anyone who has 'checked in' this week knows that I have an inordinate love for irises. I would have to say, though, that if roses are the queens of the plant world, irises would have to be the royal duchesses. They aren't around all the time, but when irises show up, they surely command attention and admiration.
