Iris germanica 'Fortunate Son'

German Bearded Iris

This groundbreaking new selection produces deep ruby red blossoms with broad spreading falls and a very unusual blue colored beard.  It visually pops off the petals because it is such an unexpected color.  In the summer sun, you’ll love how the ruffled edges of the petals have an almost metallic shimmer.   This one’s not to be missed!
