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.

Dales Red, a hardy border auricula.
Dales Red is very hardy border auricula which
does well in Sweden. It was raised by Dale Worthington in 1954. I have used it
as a parent plant when raising some of my own auricula cultivars.
