In Love with Japanese Irises
Two more favorite irises
One of John's favorites for Midwest growers is 'Chiyo-No-Haru' (left), a classic single-petaled beauty, with white falls and small, upright, purple petals. "We recommend planting a white variety because it stands out among the violet-colored ones," John says.
He also recommends 'Crystal Halo', calling it the best landscape iris because its bright purple-and-white falls can be seen "clear across the garden."
