0744 A will now be known as PRINCE EUGÈNE:
With its white standards and wide, bright raspberry border on the falls, it is one of our favourites for 2015. With 4 stems and an average of 9 buds, this variety is a “must”! We thank its famous Godfather, Prince Napoleon, for accepting that this iris be named after him. (Mid season, 85cm, €20.-)
05255 B as appetizing as fudge is named DÉLICIEUX CARAMEL
Pure white standards and wide, deep caramel-coloured falls forming a perfectly precise contrast. Low-branched stalks: 4 branches and 10 to 11 buds on average. The best amoena to be found in these honey and copper tones. (Mid-season, 90cm, €16.-)
06160 C signals the arrival of summer; therefore it will be called BIENTÔT L’ÉTÉ
Pure light yellow standards and white falls with a wide, dark blue-violet brim. Orange beards sometimes lengthened by a violet spoon and surrounded with yellow markings. Very strong substance. Well-branched stalks carrying 8 buds. (Very late, 80cm, €15.-)
