Horned and Spooned Iris are considered new or space age irises. They were first developed by Lloyd Austin in America.
They refer to irises that have a beard which is detached from the fall and points upward.
Spooned iris have an additional petal flounce which extends from the beard.
At present I only have a few, but would like to build up my collection in this area over the coming years.
Tall Bearded Irises are $6 to $15 each
Irises can be ordered from early September with delivery in late Nov. or Dec.
