Joan last put out introductions in 2008. She will have five out this year, but I only have info on three of them. All three are Re-Bloomers! They are:

Come Back Kid BB
Gettysburg Sunset TB
Re-Enactment TB

The other two she was having naming issues as her first choice for names was rejected. I will get some pictures up when I can pry them from her!

Edit Note: I just went back to do more research on this and noticed that I had announced the second iris as "Gettysburg Sunrise" when in fact it is "Gettysburg Sunset". A big difference any way you split it!

Her website is archaic at best. It still shows her 2008 stuff and is a very "flat" site. Still, you can call her to order (not sure when that will be & I will try to find out) the new stuff when it is available. Here is her site:

The name of her "business" is "Friendship Gardens" and it is in Gettysburg PA.

Here is the corrected list of Joan Robert's 2013 introductions.

Amazing with Grace TB RE
Gettysburg Sunset TB RE
I Shall Return TB RE
I'll Have Another TB RE
Re-Enactment TB RE

Notice that they ALL are re-bloomers!

I had listed "Come Back Kid" BB RE as a 2013 introduction, but she pulled this one for future consideration. I will try to get pictures.

Ok, I finally realized that I had not posted this group picture. Dum me! Here is the "flyer". Her page is still messed up as it still shows here 2008 offering. For some reason she can't get her web team to change to the new page (yes, I know it has been almost a year!)

Got's to have I'll Have Another. I am intrigued by luminatas and am doing a little work with them. I have seeds in the ground right now of (Moonlit Water X Undercurrent) and (Elizabethan Age X Expose').

I am leaning towards "Re-Enactment" as my favorite (maybe because it reminds me of "Apparent Secret"). Of course, since Joan is one of my "must collect all" hybridizers, I want (need?) all of them. Whistling

Yup -- I'm with Bonnie -- I'll Have Another and Gettysburg Sunset are my picks. I'd have to see GS relax its falls though. But the colors are beautiful.
