Iris ensata ‘Frilled Enchantment’
I have a dear friend, Jinny Marino, who among many things is a superb gardener, floral designer, flower judge and generous of heart. In March when I was celebrating another birthday, she offered me some iris from her collection. When the time is right she said, “I will dig them for you.” Yesterday at the garden club picnic my gift arrived. Imagine my pleasure in now having these two beauties for my new garden at ‘The Cottage for Two.’
Here is what I have to look forward to…..Delicate white blooms with ruffled, purple edges are carried above clumps of strap-like foliage. Prized for their large, open flowers, these oriental beauties are the last to flower in the iris family, but well worth waiting for. The pretty blooms of Iris ensata ‘Frilled Enchantment’ are perfect for adding to cut flower arrangements. Japanese iris enjoy a reliably moist, boggy soil making them ideal for marginal planting around ponds. Height: (31″). Spread: (12″). Though I have nary a pond to place them near, I hope they will like their new home.
THANK YOU JINNY
