Nelly Tardivier Bearded German Iris

An exquisite iris in royal hues
This iris honors Madame Nelly Tardivier, former director of the Tuileries Garden in Paris, and it wouldn't look out of place in the famous artistic garden. An average of eleven fan-shaped flowers bloom on each plant. The lower petals, or falls, of Nelly Tardivier stand out for their fan-shaped, horizontal form, and glow in a flush of burgundy and magenta. A fuzzy copper-colored "beard" decorates each fall. The upright standards are beautifully ruffled and royally purple. Standing proudly at nearly three feet in height, and featuring multiple blooms, this iris is alluring in the back of a bed or in a grouping of other tall German bearded irises.
