Loop the Loop

Loop the loop Iris
To shock your senses
I wrap my self
In brilliant garments

Loop de Loop has perky white petals edged in bright purple. Very striking!

Bearded Irises are the single most popular class of Iris grown in gardens today. 'Bearded' refers to the fuzzy strip on each of the drooping falls. The true petals are called standards and are upright and its leaves are quite stiff and grow in fan shaped clumps. Few flowering plants provide so much beauty with so little effort as the Bearded Iris. Although they're not fussy about soil - they do require a sunny spot with good drainage. Not only will you have an excellent supply of cut flowers but they will also multiply annually for continued enjoyment. ~ Bernard
