This is how the mystery iris ended up looking in my back terrace garden. It popped up next to the compost bin. I am sure it has enjoyed the extra water and nutrients that it inadvertently received due to its location.
I would describe it as a mauve-with-traces-of-peach iris.
I must admit that irises have never been my favorite flower. Too showy and much too much floozy attitude for me. And they have no staying power.
However, I have decided to let it stay by the compost bin. If it continues to show up every spring, I'll admire its lavender frills for the mega second it is at its peak.
