I'm incredibly lucky to live down the road from what must be one of the world's most magical places . . . the Napa Country Iris Gardens. If you're not able to go yourself, check out their amazingly comprehensive website and online catalog.
Here are a couple recent arrangements featuring bearded iris I begged off the farm (they specialize in rhizomes, not cuts), along with allium, clematis, hellebores, buckeye, lamium, artichoke, lavender, sage, maiden hair fern, pea tendrils, and maple whirly birds from our garden.
