Spring-Iris

The Irises were amazing this spring. These heirloom varieties were likely planted in the 1940s when the gardens were first being restored although there has been some suggestion that they are much older and have been on the property for one or more hundred years. Although there were only three varieties that I found, they were prolific and will probably require a thinning this year. If you know any of their names, please share with me.
