Blue Bearded Iris at Newby Hall, Yorkshire
Newby Hall, Yorkshire – a substantial double herbaceous border punctuated with these glorious iris, the name of which I either neglected to note – or was not marked – or I didn’t bother to look if it was (so much to photograph…)
I think the colour has been accurately recorded in the photograph – perhaps a bit more inky purple? One other photo had it a little different.
I’ll have to have a look through my Cayeux catalogue and the garden notes I picked up from the visitor centre. Quite a standout flower, this iris. Worth a bit of detecting.
