About this book

From the myths and medicine of ancient Greece to the fleur-de-lys emblem of medieval and Renaissance France, irises occupy a timeless niche in our imagination. The endless diversity and colour combinations of the bearded varieties, above all, have made them a gardener's dream.

Iris offers detailed information on seventy of today's best varieties of bearded iris, and on their planting and care. White, yellow, purple, crimson-the blooms in this gloriously photographed book capture the extraordinary elegance and allure of a plant prized throughout the centuries as the personification of the rainbow. Iris makes a wonderful gift for the gardener planning the planting season or for the well-furnished coffee table.
