William of Orange
Discover William of Orange, a groundbraking orange iris, from our Collection of Award Winning British Bearded Irises.
One of the best ‘Orange’ Irises
One of the spectacular new range of ‘oranges’ from Bryan’s final period of concentrated hybridising. This is definitely one of the very best, a truly outstanding plant with classic ‘Dodsworth’ form and structure and great depth and intensity of colour. If you want impact, this is the plant for you, and if you like hot colours, this iris is definitely the business.
