Earl of Essex is one of the best known of the hybridizer's pioneering early work with remontant Iris and a consistent rebloomer here in Oregon. A classic plicata, its clean white petals are heavily veined and stippled with wisteria violet markings with a gentle ruffling and fluting of the softly color petals.
