Here are Griff's new ones. I like "Night Bird" the most out of the 2013 group. You can see his other introductions from years past by clicking on the three categories at the top of the page (Tall Bearded, Median Bearded, & Standard dwarf).

What are your favs?

I agree Greg -- I also like Night Bird best of the group. However -- gotta say, and hate saying it -- the others are no different, or not much different, than what's already out there. I'm afraid that we're all getting so spoiled with really unusual and spectacular Irises being introduced, that *ordinary nice* introductions are...........well, ordinary................ Sad Am I the only one who feels this way?

I agree. I think the next big wave is re-bloomers; but not "Ordinary" types.

I believe you're right! Rebloomers are gonna be the next big thing. The differences between a lot of the newer "intros", are hard for the non-expert to see. I suppose thaqts true of all the iris "eras", but much more so now. I'm not big on frills, and lace anyway, so color and bloomtime mean more to me....Arlyn

I sure would like some re bloomers that would rebloom up here. Sutton introduced some really nice ones a couple years ago, but non will rebloom in this area.

Sutton's are from CA so their plants may not rebloom in your area. Order reblooming plants from further north, give more water in the summer & cross your fingers.

Are you interested in only TB's Tom? Or any "size"? I have some that I have good luck with, here, Earl of Essex, and Total Recall. Immortality is supposed to be the "re-blooming wonder", but I just saw the first fall stalks this year.And they "stalled out"! Immortality and Earl, have to be split this year, hint, hint....Arlyn

I have all sizes of iris, and I have had good luck with Immortality reblooming, At times I get Harvest of Memories to rebloom. I'd be up for trading for some of the other ones though.

Takes time for Immortality to settle in after first planted. It was a reliable fall bloomer after it had done so. We took it to the club iris sale as it was reliable enough to sell.

I'll get ahold of you in June, or so, Tom. I've several rebloomer clumps to divide, and only a few pups are spoken for.Next year i'll have to thin the main bed(big job), and there should be lots of everything to share. It took Immortality about 15 years to rebloom for me, and then it froze out !! Got my fingers crossed for this year ! Where would we be without Hope !!....Arlyn
