Somewhere over the rainbow – Irises on show at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

The first in a short sequence of photographic posts featuring particular plants displayed at the 2016 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Bearded Irises, these. Wow, but these are beautiful! So glad I finally got around to sorting through them.

Rather miffed I missed the show at Wootens of Wenhaston in Suffolk – 2 acres of irises and just a quick drive around the motorway. Next year then – I’ve included the video from Cayeux to give us both a taste!

Several nurseries in the floral marquee – and several of the show gardens – showcased these rainbow beauties – here are just a few of them – from Kelways and Cayeux Iris, and Claire Austin Hardy Plants too (if not others).
