Fragrant Iris was born out of my personal frustration with ordering irises that were advertised as “fragrant”, then, after growing them for two years, finding that at least nine out of ten had virtually no discernable fragrance!

I will be growing hundreds of iris varieties, each officially catalogued as having “pronounced fragrance”. I will cull any iris that does not actually prove to have a robust fragrance.

I will post photographs and detailed descriptions on this blog of the aroma of those varieties that pass the “fragrance test”.
