Rajah Brooke (Norton 1945 .Parentage: Matula x Garden Magic ) reminds me of my childhood as my grandmother grew it . Then, it and other old favourites seemed to disappear from English gardens. I search the gardens of Victorian houses for Irises and have a growing collection of unnamed cultivars .Happily, I have reordered Rajah Brooke from Jersey.
