about 16" - 24" tall (40 - 60 cm) in flower, the white form
of this species is attractive. The regular pale blue form is so
as to render a drab off-white color. I like the orange flare on the
the falls, a perky contrast to the clean white flowers.
In the photo below, taken on a drizzly morning, the flower are
just beginning to open. This view clearly shows the novel
zig-zag corn-like growth of the flower stems, each leaf axil
armed with a flower bud. The blooms on the Juno irises
always seem to open from the top down.
