Cajun Rhythm along with being a beautiful color , also has a great fragrance. My favorite orange iris by far. It blooms late here.

A beautiful and reliable iris, that bloomed well the first year. We had a very wet, unpredictable winter but it didn't seem to bother the iris. Thank heavens for raised beds.
