Not perhaps the prettiness of Iris as I find it slightly out of proportion having a small flower relative to a long stem (looks rather like a flag Iris to me )but is so reliable .It bloomed the first year from a poor quality rhizome(I won't be using that breeder again!) and now ,in rich soil with bone meal added has bloomed and multiplied in the second.

Apparently it was hybridised by Goos and Koenemann in 1910.
