2014 Tall Bearded Iris GRANDE COQUETTE
This is Richard Cayeux favourite introduction for 2014 and is certainly a stand out Iris with that 'let me show you a thing or two about colour' look that certainly pushes the boundaries. Its both elegant and bold. (Now who would of thought that combination was possible?)
Cayeux, La Carcaudière, Route de Coullons, France. Iris Lover's Catalogue, 2014.
New 2014 varieties created by Cayeux.
