Skye Blue

Skye Blue Bearded Iris is a pure ‘pale blue’ to complement ‘Bryan’s Best Blue’, but subtly different, a little darker and shorter, with tighter flowers and less ruffled. It has the characteristic ‘Dodsworth’ form and branching. One of my father’s favourite irises and one he really admired.

It does really well in the garden, bulks up quickly and importantly has a high bud count (3) on each flowering point. This plant increases the range of  ‘Blues’ and is an important addition to the ‘Cools’ collection.

Skye Blue Bearded Iris is great as a standalone iris; mixes well with other ‘Cools’; experiment with ‘Softs’ (Pale Yellow/Pink); try it with ‘Hots’, (Deep Yellow/Oranges/Browns) .
Delicate scent.

Bred by Bryan Dodsworth. Height 40” (102cm). Light blue. White beard. Self. Registered 1996.
