One in Adelphi, Maryland, one in Wildwood, Florida, one at the US National Arboretum with a grandfatherly interest in many more around the DC area (unless noted, pictures are taken the day of post)

Iris ensete 'Edged Delight' from Dr. William Ackerman, the novelist and producer of winter hardy camellias
Apparently many years ago Dr. Ackerman released a number of selections of Iris ensete. We're on a mission to reacquire them and grow them in the Asian Collections. We have about 18 now and this is the first to flower. It is nice!
