B. Blyth 2012
 The Tempo Two web site has now been updated with all of the photos of his new 2012 Introductions.(Yes folks there are more than three outstanding irises introduced by Barry each season.) Mr. Blyth the generous chap that he is sent these three photo's of his new introductions to share with you all as a preview to the release of one of the finest kaleidoscopes of sensational new Irises for 2012. Checklist descriptions for these varieties are listed at the bottom of this page. Tempo Two gardens will be open to visitors on 3 weekends starting 20th October, 2012 and will have a display in their barn of some of the newer named iris for closer comparison to each other, or if you like you can wander the rows and see how they grow.

  1. I especially like hte color combination of 'In High Heels'. Those pale lavender standards are a nice soft contrast to the deep, rich purple falls, very ruffley too.
