The iris, a charismatic plant

One just needs to look at the number of new varieties which have been registered every 10 years (somewhere between 5 and 7 thousand) to be convinced of this flower’s charisma.

Mother Nature has been very generous: there are over 300 botanical species scattered across the world’s various continents, from the driest of desert steppe regions to the murkiest of marchlands, and thus, an unbeatable wealth of genetic material is available to enable the wildest crossbreeds to be created.

Anything from the miniature dwarf of less than 18 cm in height to the tall iris spuria (of over 1m50 in some cases), there is something there for every taste, and for every kind of garden.

It is rare for gardeners not to fall under its charm and rare too to see such a sophisticated plant family.

The iris is even known to bring peoples together. For my part, I recall an Iris event held in Florence, in the superb gardens by the Piazza Michelangelo, where judges from Europe, the US and Russia all worked together in a civilized manner, united by one same passion.

So yes, one can say that, whether they be from Siberia, Louisiana, Japan or even from Germany, the iris flowers are indeed stunning and amazing!
