With lilacs having reached their peak, and tulips making a curtain call (this is the last week), many other flowers are elbowing each other for the spotlight. Do not miss these bearded irises and grapefruit-sized alliums at DUVA Farm's Union Square stand. They may be sold out today, but they will be back on Wednesday. Take a quick look after the jump.
These irises were brimming with rusty purples and deep yellows and brown-tinged cornflower blue. They stood like wise, ancient creatures in stark contrast with their thick stems to the little bright annuals a few stands down.
The irises were $4 per stem, and the alliums were slightly more - at about $7. Either way you are getting maximum impact for your dollar with these two choices.
