A classic neglecta with light blue standards over velvety falls, heavily veined white and darker purple.

“Faustine holds a special place in my heart. It was my first iris and was inherited from my favorite uncle. It is a workhorse and has multiplied greatly over the years. It always puts on a wonderful show. Never fails to bloom, even in the bad years, and the stalks never fall over. It was even asked to adorn the reception tables at my daughter’s wedding and received many comments. Faustine will always be in my garden and will also have a place in my children’s. It is part of the family!” – Darleen, WV

“This is one of my all time favorite photos of an iris. Everything is enchanting – the blue skies with fluffy clouds, the green hills, the iris patch. A beautifully composed shot. The daisies are the perfect companion.” – Mike, WA
