“Big and Beautiful”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Big and beautiful is the only way to describe this flower. The first of the Louisiana irises has started blooming. This one is Marie Dolors which puts out big, white flowers.
I have this particular iris placed in the garden with Iceberg roses and white violas, and the three make a very nice combination. There is also white lilies nearby, but this year they are not blooming at this time.
Marie Dolors is a very vigorous iris and has done very well for me. The flowers are supported by thick stems which are showing multiple flowers blooming at the same time. This is only the second year I have had her, and already she has multiplied well. In another couple of years, there should be a good stand of this white beauty.
I really like white flowers, and this one is surely making this section of the garden lovely.
