So glad to see your MERRY AMIGO in bloom -- mine has not bloomed for me in the two years that I've had it, but I've ordered another rhizome and may move the plant next time around. Yours is beautiful!

Some nice ones Paul, My Partiotic Heart has never bloomed, moved it last year, and it still didn't bloom, but it looks happier, maybe next year.

Patriotic Heart took three years before it bloomed in my garden, but now blooms reasonably well. My general experience with Maryott iris is that they take awhile to settle in and are never really impressive growers.

Are you doing any crosses with Merry Amigo, Paul?

I haven't made any crosses yet with Merry Amigo but may use it with some of my Gypsy Lord X French Riviera seedlings.
