Friday's Favourite - Caesar's Brother

I do not have many irises, a couple of clumps of pallida (sweet iris that has green and gold foliage) but the ones I like best are I. siberica 'Caesar's Brother'.  This regal name must come from the description of royal blue flowers witht a gold throat.

This is Caesar's Brother in bud

The flower fully open

  2. Just beautiful! And the color is so gorgeous.
    I have one iris that is pale lavender with a gold throat and a shorter variety that is yellow with a burgundy throat. They are both lovely and I wish I knew more about them but they were here when I moved in and I just divide them each spring and spread the cuttings to new locations.
    From a small clump in one bed I now have three huge clumps in different spots in the yard.
    So exciting when they finally open in the spring!
