Berries portrait of
Iris foetidissima
Gladwyn or Stinking Iris




Green pods have been ripening all through the summer
on this evergreen iris. Come September & October,
the pods burst open into brilliant orange-red fruits.




The Gladwyn, Gladwin, or Gladdon Iris is very popularly
known as the Stinking Iris, but in gardens
it really does not have an odor.
If not for that common name, it would
probably be even more widely gardened
for the sake of these coral berries.




This branch was so top-heavy with
Gladwyn fruits it bent right down to a hunk
of driftwood laying beside the iris.

For more about our Gladwyn Iris, see the primary
Iris foetidissima page
