Henry Sidgwick Tall Bearded Iris

Henry Sidgwick

Named after the Founder of Newnham College, an iris of undoubted character.

The standards and style arms of the gently ruffled blooms are dark red bordering on brown. The falls have a velvet texture and show a deep red colour with a black sheen, with a short pencil line white stripe where the dark orange beard ends.

£2 of a £12 rhizome is donated to the Garden Fund Project.

Bred by Barry Emmerson.
