TALL Iris

I have written about my iris, Frequent Violet in the past. It is blooming now and I am amazed at how tall the blooms are! They must be about four feet tall! It may be because this area gets little direct light at this time of year and they are stretching, but of all the iris I have grown in many locations, this has to be the tallest. By the looks of the foliage that is looking rather spent, it must have taken all the plant's energy to reach these heights!
