Another Obsession - The Stately Iris

"Thou art the Iris, fair among the fairest,

Who, armed with golden rod

And winged with the celestial azure, bearest

The message of some God."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 - 1882)

shown: Louisiana Iris 'Black Gamecock'
suitable for garden, pond or bog.
A prolific, free flowering iris, the foliage provides
structure in a garden even when not in bloom.
