|'Mississippi Eavesdropper' (Peter Jackson, 2011)|
Peter Jackson of Australia has produced many beautiful Louisiana irises. 'Mississippi Eavesdropper' is certainly a great example of his work. This flower form is very uncommon in modern Louisiana iris hybrids. The yellow style arms standing tall matched by the same color halo around the petals makes this one of my favorite pictures and favorite irises!

Another great iris by Heather from "down under". It has such striking signals and coordinated colors! It has 'Our Dorothy' as a parent.
I hope you have enjoyed some of these well photographed pictures of beautiful irises. Grab that camera during bloom season and get out there and take some award winners of your own!
