Iris 'Domino Noir'

Iris ‘Domino Noir’

It is described as having “deep rose margins soften into white centres and unusual double-petalled flowers giving the bloom a lacy appearance.  Burgundy foliage adds interest in autumn and it stands as a good cut flower overall.”

Second place went to Iris ‘Domino Noir’– Cayeux Iris. Several generations of crosses have resulted in a stunning iris with unique “truly black” falls, white standards with only a hint of lavender and gold beards.
