Tall Iris, 'Edith Wolford' is a herbaceous perennial that grows up to tall. The beautiful yellow and blue flowers bloom mid spring. The plant is critter resistant and drought tolerant. Grows in sun to part shade.
Black Bat Flower I am not sure whether it's the WHOLE flower that's the bat (it looks kind of bat-faced) or the middle part (pistil?) that also looks a bit like a tiny bat face. I love orchids; I love bats; and I love purple.
