I would like to see phots of what various iris cultivars look like in a large planting of mainly just one cultivar. Some iris look trashy en mass, while others look terrific. These photos will also give us an idea of a particular cultivar's potential to propagate into a large, beautiful mass.

Flavascens and I. pallida both make lovely landscape masses. Easy to grow. I have seen pics of whole gardens of I. Pallida in France, I believe, where they grow it for orris root.

Siberian iris look good in mass. After they have stopped blooming, the foliage remains attractive until fall. The seed pods look lovely too.
