Jewel in the Garden

Iris unguicularisIris Ungularis  – A welcome jewel in the Garden

Also known as Algerian Iris, this rhizome is  a welcome treat along the garden path in December.  Iris unguicularis will take a fair amount of dry shade.   Some fragrance is another reason to love this plant.

Another is that it was shared by a friend.   Best dividing is in the spring.  Your friends will treasure this jewel.

Enjoy – living the EntwinedLife
