SOLD! A favored perennial in many parts of the world, the iris may rise as high as four feet in some gardens, making it most distinctive.
This elegant iris rises high to show her jewel-studded crown made glistening by the clear morning sun.
The genus name, Iris, stems from the Greek word for rainbow and is aptly named due to the vast variety of colors available not only within the broad family of irises, but also within a singular species or bloom.
One of a series of award-winning oil paintings on garden blooms by Pat Cross.
