Purple Iris Flowering - 2012

On the south side of our house there's a mess of perennials.  Some we've planted, some left over from the mean old lady who lived in our house before we bought it.  These tall purple iris are hers.  They've come up every spring and bloom these very pretty light purple flowers.  They don't last long, but I like them and would like to see them get a better spot than smashed in betwix all the various hodge-podge of flowers.  They provide a nice variety in terms of height and the greenery stays longer than the flowers.  We're having a landscape plan drawn up that *should* include them.  One way or another... they'll be incorporated in a nice way.
