Mary Ann you should look into some of the Sutton ones they have some great colors I know Betty has bought a few over the past couple years and her pictures attracted me to some of them. I also like the fact they they are hybridizing with the goal of producing Rebloomers, it won't do me any good cause they freeze to fast here but in Kentucky you might have some Luck. Here are the few I added.

Edge Of The World -no pic

Adventurous

Aleutian Islands

Cold Fusion


My wish list for next year

Cold Creek


All Smiles

This year I got the following Sutton irises:

Adventurous (Had to add it after I saw Brad's pictures!)
Autumn Breeze (2012)
Divergence (Bonus)
Fruited Plain (2012 - Bonus)
Glacier Melt
Pacific Crest (2012 - Bonus)
Ruby Moon (2012- Bonus)
And I had ordered another of their new introductions, TIME BANDIT, but they indicated they could not provide that one.

I also ordered three others to add to existing clumps:
Double Down
Midnight Cowboy
Rim Of Fire

And they sent even more bonus plants that I had listed as suggestions:
Duplication (Bonus)
Battle Of The Bands (Bonus)
Orange Toffee (Bonus)

Needless to say they were incredibly generous, since I purchased six and received seven bonus plants!

Edit: By the way, I love that ALL SMILES and it's going on my list for next year!

I have always had good results from Suttons Irises. They are generous with their bonuses as well. And yes, between Brad and Betty's pictures, I have spent a lot of money, lol. Then there's Paul and Kent's pics that keep putting more on my lists to buy. Well, maybe I shouldn't list whos pics, as I might not have time to list you all as they are all so nice, and my list just keeps growing and growing.

Brad is Cold Fusion and All Smiles really super great as in the pictures, as I usually do not order solely on the photos, but those both are very interesting

Dee, Cold Fustion is stunning! No pictures can't do it justice in my estimation.
Here's another picture of it. I like all the little yellow streaks in the Standards and falls as well. Lots of details



I sure do like that All Smiles too.

Betty that is a really nice group of sutton plants I will be looking forward to your pictures of them.

Dee Cold Fusion looked good everywhere I saw it and the couple that I bought are doing really well, lots of increase it should bloom for me next year. The other one All Smiles I do not remember it, the picture was taken in Santa Cruz region in California and it must be a earlier blooming variety, when I was there it was still a week or so before they had peak, I did not see it in Oregon so I can't help on the plant but the picture should be really close to what it has.
