Iris unguicularis 'Winter Echoes' is a 2011 Rick Tasco introduction...a sibling to his earlier introduction, Iris 'Wishmaster'. Iris unguicularis 'Winter Echoes' starts flowering for us in November, pauses during the coldest part of winter, then resumes when temperatures moderate. The large, rich purple, sweetly-fragrant flowers are highlighted by a prominent yellow eyezone which is surrounded by nice white floral veining...outstanding!
