Irises of the Season

by Jean Richter

For this last post of 2019, I present to you a group of irises with seasonal names, pertaining to winter and late-year holidays. As might be expected, some of these varieties are rebloomers, and those will be noted with their picture. All iris are tall bearded unless otherwise noted.

My best wishes for a joyous and peaceful holiday season and happy new year! May the second century of the American Iris Society build upon the many great accomplishments of the first.
