A Museum Quality Botanical Print of the Chinese Iris as it originally appeared in the Botanical Magazine in the year 1797. The picture shows a root section that is cut off and ready for transplant, hanging over the root section is a large purple bloom and standing is a stalk with a bud. The Chinese Iris was described in this popular botanical journal as being introduced into England by a Mr. Evans of the India House, of where this iris is a native. It differs from all other known iris's in having a root of the creeping kind, sending out shoots a considerable distance, by which is it rendered to very easy propagation. On strong plants, the flowers are numerous and have a considerable degree of fragrance.
