(1907) Iris Iberica by Amos Perry
Gsrdeners' Chronicle p.302, May 11, 1907
Iris iberica. Mr. Amos Perry writes as follows from his Hardy Plant Farm, Enfield, Middlesex: "I showed Iris iberica on April 30 at the meeting of the Royal Horticultural Society, and there appears to have been a good deal of doubt about plants flowering in the open air. I have a bed of thiese in flower now in the open. Many of the Oncocyclus Iris grow and do much better when planted in a spot congenial to their requirements, that is hot, dry soil and very stony. Iris Susiana I never saw looking better, every root, I think, is going to flower well, and almost every plant of Iris iberica will be in flower during the next fortnight or three weeks."
