These iris plants were some of the first we planted when we moved here 37 years ago. We had a dark damp area close to the north-facing aspect of our house. I decided to go with the nature of the plot and create a bog garden.
Just at a similar time, friends had moved into a house nearby and part of their garden spread onto some damp wasteland. They encouraged us to come and take clumps of these irises.
I love the splash of colour they give in a dark area!
