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.

Ray's fancy JOHAN
JOHAN is an unusual Swedish fancy auricula; it
came from a ‘Osbourne Green’ x ‘Starling’ cross, it has fine dusting of farina on the petals, but very little on the leaves.
