Glendon’s Rhode Island Garden – Bagicha Bazaar



My name is Glendon Elliott. My garden is in Jamestown, Rhode Island, on Konanicut Island, where, surrounded by water, we are always a bit warmer (or cooler in the spring) than our zone 6 location.

Vase with bright blue flowers and dark red foliageI was clipping some new growth. Quotance ‘Royal Purple’ (Zones 5-8) and noticed the shocking intense blue color of these irises. I just cut two blooms (three would be better) and placed them in the vase. Quotance I think it’s a good effect.

Glendon likes to use it at the back of the border for height and texture and says this particular one sowed itself in that spot.
