    Fabulous color! Looking forward to seeing the crocus eventually, too.

    What’s not to love…gorgeous flower in winter, and fragrant, too! Why isn’t this more available in the gardening trade. Sounds perfect.
    Thanks for the pick-me-up.

    very good photo- comes across on my screen as almost ‘real’- I imagine a great deal of effort was responsible for this effect. kudos.

    Lovely! It’s amazing to me that this fragile-looking flower emerges during the inhospitable winter months. I wonder what the pollinators are in the iris’ native habitats.

    To answer jessica above two issues are that the flowers may be spoiled by slugs and a virus problem has developed among cultivated stocks. Nevertheless you can find it being offered with some searching.
