Thunder Echo

This iris with the unusual name deserves a pause. It has the most complex coloring of all my bearded iris.

‘Thunder Echo’ came in a group from Cooley’s Gardens that I ordered almost three decades ago. I would not have picked this one, but it is a favorite.

The coloration of the falls is what fascinates me. That dusty plum fringe and spots on white are lovely.

The standards stay slightly opened to expose the three style arms which have complex coloring also.

I would never choose an iris with tan standards, but I have two and love them both.

They are a nice break from the sea of pinks and purples in spring.
