Prince George is one of my favorite irises! To begin with, it's a late bloomer, giving me lovely blooms after the others are gone by. I love the bold, blue and white coloring with nearly-red beards, but my favorite thing about the iris is the sparkly, bronze-colored, fine metallic rim on the standards. The sparkly-ness doesn't show up in photos, but you can see the coloration on the rim of the standards if you look closely.

This is one iris that I have a hard time walking away from when it is in bloom! I just can't get enough of its beauty.
