Orange Harvest Iris

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We have quite a few different irises in our yard.  We've had this beautiful iris, Orange Harvest, in our yard for several years.  We always look forward to the return of these blossoms in the Spring.

Lovely color photo of the iris and in the drops of water. Yours.

A good name for a pretty flower. I'm sure it compliments the shades of some of your lilies and gives quite a display.

Sandra said...

Bela captura duma "iris" que transmite uma fragância energizante resultante do carinho com que trata as suas flores.

A Lady's Life said...

You must be a gypsy at heart George to have such beautiful flowers which seem to wave their frilly skirts around to some hot latino guitar.
I love flowers like this.:)

Linda said...

Gorgeous! Unusual color for an iris. We just planted about 20 iris roots.

Indrani said...

I have seen the purple ones more, this is new to me.

Jeevan said...

So pretty and delicious iris! Relish

I've always liked these because of how, at first glance, they look like a beautiful formal gown. But upon closer examination, the details of the flower prove to be so much more exquisite than the finest dresses!

Lynda said...

I don't know that I have seen an orange iris before. It's gorgeous. Have you all posted it before? I don't remember it - - but we can't count on my memory for all the facts either.

Betty Manousos said...

Lisa Buben said...

This flower is beautiful and very interesting, it has different parts to it. A "complicated" flower and a pretty orange color.

Amelia said...

Hi George, very elegant and beautiful Iris. Love the orange color. Always enjoyed looking at all the flowers from your garden. Happy gardening.

Best regards.
