First iris here in the middle of winter is another of Alan McMurtrie's hybrids, 'Dance On'.
Unfortunately a slug found it before I did :'(
It's now surrounded by slug pellets!

I must have seen thousands of Iris unguicularis in the wild, Fermi, with tremendous variations in the depth of colour even within each single population, but I've never seen a white one. What a treat, thanks!

This Dutch Iris was the only yellow one available when I first started growing them more than 30 years ago!
'Golden Harvest' is a brilliant flower though it appears "dumpy" compared to more recent introductions,

Do you have all your wonderful iris photos gathered together on a site somewhere? If not can I offer the new MGS photo gallery site as a display area for you?
