Iris Stylosa. This Iris, established in a row at the foot of a south wall continues to produce its fragrant blue flowers. It has been flowering since the middle of November in very poor soil, and flowers have been cut almost daily. They are best cut in the bud state and opened in water, and when cut as low down as possible they last longer than the flowers with a comparatively short length of stem.
