Previously I lived in Sweden for nearly 20 years and my quest there was to hybridize auriculas to produce ever better plants suitable for the harsh Swedish climate. Whilst living there I also created and run Sweden’s Auricula Club. I've now returned to England to continue growing auriculas together with my daughter-in-law, Iris. Iris is also an enthusiastic & skilful Iris grower; many of her wonderful Irises can be seen on this blog.

BERIT; bold and upright.
Ray's Double BERIT
BERIT has those traits that I’m looking for in a
Swedish Auricula. She does well in the Swedish climate and has a full truss on
a strong upright stem. She also has a fine scent.
Truss = a head of pips (flower heads)
Pip = individual flower head
