Irises – the Shooting Stars of the Plant World

Sissinghurst Castle Garden in Kent, England was designed in the 1930’s by the writer and poet Vita Sackville-West and her husband Harold Nicolson.  Harold’s architectural planning of the pathways and “garden rooms”, and the colourful, abundant planting of the gardens by Vita, reflect the romance and intimacy of her poems and writings. Sackville-West assembled and cultivated an amazing collection of roses and other flowering plants. One of her favorite flowers was the Iris which she thought was greatly under appreciated.  This video showcases the variety and beauty of the irises in the garden.
