Flowering in the garden this morning New Zealand Bred 'Norma Valerie' a Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris in shades of soft watercolours. Hybridised by Ron Busch, this variety is always covered in blooms every season and shows good increase. Strong clean high health Foliage, showing PBF. An interesting Fertile Parent;
I recently talked to Ron about this iris and we concluded that Norma Valerie is an Iris that takes a season or two to reach its full potential but when it gets there it is an Iris that I am more than pleased to have it in my collection . Great Fragrance first thing in the morning
Named after Ron's wife Norma.
