Iris 'Kent Pride'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Among our thousands of plant accessions, tall bearded iris are represented by just a single plant - Iris 'Kent Pride'. This outlier in our collections strategy is sited in one of the choicest spots in the dry garden because it is a stunner. Rich chestnut-red standards with the same overlaid on yellow around a white blaze on the falls - so good! An enduring gift to us from one of the PNW's best plant minds, Jim Fox, who acquired this at Beth Chatto's nursery in England and which we finally have enough to spare a few. It will be some years before we offer it again so dither not. Fresh divisions potted in gallons.
