| From Draycott Gardens catalog, 2016: RYUGAN (Hiroshi Shimizu, 2008) 33" VE. This is my first pseudata to bloom. It blooms about two weeks before the first Japanese irises. The falls are light yellow and are sanded with a dark wine purple. The style arms are bright yellow with a ruffled end which is also sanded with the deep wine color. The standards are very small and are a yellow which fades to a lighter cream as the flower matures. Stalks are very well branched and carry the terminal and 3 branches. There are often three flowers in bloom at one time. The stalk has at least eight buds and the terminal is triple socketed. The foliage on this variety is quite nice. The name means "Dragon's Eye". $10.00
