Synopsis
Sarah Cook has reassembled this iris collection that were bred and painted by the famous 20th­century artist, and plantsman, Sir Cedric Morris at his house (Benton End) and garden at Hadleigh in Suffolk. The distinguishing feature of these irises is their subtle and delicate colours and markings. Sarah has, almost single handedly, saved these varieties from extinction and brought them back into cultivation so that are available for futuregenerations to enjoy.
