I ordered Pussycat Pink this spring, based largely on your pictures, Paul. Greatly appreciated.

It had stalks all over the clump this spring on a 2nd yr plant. too early, of course because of the strange weather.

Paul, I love your pink seedlings! I think I like the second one best because of the touch of rose in the haft area -- a wonderful touch! but the others are right up there too. Your seedlings are just as beautiful as the registered irises!

And if I was at home I would be adding a picture or two of -- you guessed it -- PICTURE BOOK!

Oh I thought I was done ordering for this year. *Blush*
Now I'll have to add more to my pink wish list. Those are just beautiful. Pink is my favorite color.... Whistling Hilarious!
