2014 Tall Bearded Iris ASTANA
Heritage Irises are privileged to have been asked to feature some of the 2014 New Varieties created by Richard Cayeux.
European Irises do not always get the exposure to the English speaking media that they justly deserve so I thought 'OK,

Don't forget to visit the Cayeux Web Site.
