We are currently planning to put the first plants in stock at the beginning of February when the weather begins to warm. However, this depends on government guidance about non-essential mail-order businesses, and also on the couriers and postal services. We will keep you updated.

We obtained this iris from the United States some years ago, under the appealing name Iris laevigata 'Queen of Violets', a name not known in the UK. Having grown it for some time, we think 'Queen of Violets' is actually an American name for Iris laevigata 'Weymouth Midnight', a variety first bred in Dorset in the 1980s, since the blooms appear identical. Either way it is a beautiful iris, and very hard to obtain now, under either name.
