Zig Zag

ZIG ZAG (T. Johnson ’21) SDB Late 12” (30.5cm) Two things immediately come to mind when I think of this flower: the brilliant beard and the wonderful wide, round and ruffled form. It could be described as a rimmed broken color plicata. A very interesting mix of several patterns in one. I have used it heavily in breeding. Zig Zag is one of many iris to be introduced out of the fantastic parent Alaia. Sdlg TK282B: Stylish Miss X Alaia.

Untamed Glory
60.00 60.00 60.0 USD
UNTAMED GLORY (T. Johnson ’21) TB Mid 28” (71cm). Untamed Glory is a novelty iris. It very consistently has six falls and no standards, but instead of going completely flat they hold in the shape of a magnolia bloom. It is very reminiscent in form of a very old cultivar by Opal Brown called Pink Magnolia. A clump of Untamed Glory will completely cover itself with these large ruffled salmon pink flowers with irregular white broken color. Definitely an iris for those who love the novelties.
