Heirloom Iris

By taggart  
Heirloom Iris

Among family members this iris is referred to as the 'Congers Iris.' It originally grew in my grandparent's garden well over 150 years ago--and has since been shared from Rhode Island to California and north and south as well. An Heirloom as such and generous with its blossoms---hardy but not fancy!

Thank you all for your many awards , votes and comments for the 'Pink and White' Columbine--

A huge weekend coming up! have a good one!

An exquisite photo Jenn....the backlight, the two buds spearing up into the composition, a lovely color background. And, what a provenance for this iris!

Wonderful image, Jenn, how nice it has been passed down so much 🌻

A beautiful heirloom Jenn and although as you say "not fancy" it is a very pretty iris. It has had quite a journey through the generations too.
