    Edgefield Glow could also be called Edgefield GROW! This iris is growing like a weed in my iris bed. It's a beautiful golden color also.

    Edgefield Glow bloomed with 8 double socketed buds its first year in my garden. The serpentine shape of the stem is graceful & interesting. The flowers are a beautiful orange, medium in tone & moderately strong in saturation - much like a ripe navel orange. This one can be seen from a distance & it glows in my garden, even on the cloudiest of days. One of my favorites.
