Neomarica caerulea 'Regina'*
Where have you been all my life? Oh, never mind, it doesn't matter now that you're mine. Now tell me, Regina, my pet ... where would you like to grow? There are some lovely spots near the pond. Or perhaps you'd prefer the shelter of the house wall? Yes, I agree ... you would look stunning against the mossy green of that wall. If it please Your Majesty, I believe I'll give you some time to tour the garden before making such a life-altering decision. Your Majesty concurs? Thank you, fair Queen ... you grace this humble garden with your presence!
