They look so fresh and cool especially to us who are still being baked by the sun!

 Iris 'Holden Clough' - an Iris pseudocorus hybrid.
We moved the entire clump last year and it is finally recovered enough to flower!
They are now in a shallow depression at the end of a "dry creek bed" which directs water here when it rains

Hi Charithea,
Yes, I've always liked the look of brown coloured Dutch Iris but it took ages to get any! On the packs of "Mixed Dutch Iris" there was always a picture with blue, yellow, white and brown flowers but there was never a brown one in the pack! 'Thunderbolt' was the first one I got from a friend back in the late 1990s, I think. The others have become available commercially in recent years here.
cheers
