Heavenly Blue

Some of my most beautiful flowers are rescue plants. Irises are so hardy and prolific that most gardeners want to get rid of theirs.

An innocuous looking shoot of a dwarf iris was one of the last remaining plants at a church garage sale. It looked like it was heading for the compost pile. I nabbed it and now it’s blooming in my and most of my friends’ gardens: its spectacular blue glow can be seen throughout Edmonton.
