The term “novelty iris describes iris that are divergent in pattern, form or habit from the mainstream of iris development.” (Ben Hager)
Iris Category: BB
Border Bearded Iris (BB) are essentially small versions of Tall Bearded Iris. In the same height range and bloom size as the intermediates, they bloom at the same time as tall bearded irises. Good Border Bearded Iris have round, ruffled petals that complement their small size.
