Chelsea in my garden

Frank Organ

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Iris germanica. The stately flowers of Iris germanica, the bearded iris, have made it a firm favorite in recent Chelsea show gardens. This year they can be found in Susannah Hunter's and Catherine MacDonald's garden for the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism, where they have used the beautiful purple variety 'Superstition'.Planted in groups of the same color, they not only make a statement when flowering in early summer, but also earn their keep throughout the year with their spiky architectural foliage.Planted in a run down the side of my deck, they balance out the rill on the other side as well as helping to lead the eye back into the garden. I chose a blue variety to reflect the deep blue skies that we get in a Devon summer.
