I ordered some historics from Snowpeak this year. It is my first time to order from Dee and I could not be more satisfied!
Thumb of 2013-07-23/enidcandles/58903a
I ordered
Plumeri 1830
The Red Douglas 1937
City of Lincoln 1936
El Toro 1958
Helen Collingwood 1949
King Tut 1926
Dauntless 1927
El Tovar 1933
Tiffany 1938
Trostringer 1926

I am so excited! There were also bonus rhizomes but I believe that the bonuses should be between the buyer and seller. There are many factors involved in selecting bonuses for customers so I will keep that information to myself but will say that I am very pleased with what I received.
Thank you Dee

Tiffany is very pretty.
These all should look great in your garden can't wait to see pictures of them all blooming.

On a side note got half of the irises planted ,the other half are going to hopefully be done today going to put yellow daylilies in with them for a more dramatic look.

If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

My order from Dee arrived yesterday, as well.

I ordered:
Scatterbrain
Secret Recipe
Juicy Rumors
Copatonic
Leaps and Bounds

As usual, Dee was very generous with her rhizomes -- and the rhizomes were good-sized and obviously very healthy.

Thanks, Dee -- I appreciate it!!

Be careful with DL & irises in the same bed. the daylilies need more water.

I might have to rethink that.

I agree ! my iris have never been happier since they have been in beds "all alone" ! Except for a few spring bulbs, and a few Asiatic lilies at the back of the beds, it's just iris. That makes culture MUCH easier for me. It helps with air-flow, sunlight penetration, and fertilizing. If you feel you need more visual interest in the "off-season", try a few of the variegated leaf iris.....Arlyn

My main Iris bed consists of two rows of Irises on the outside edge, with a row of yellow Daylilies down the center. Everyone seems to be happy. Shrug!

Just re-read that message -- it sounds confusing.

The main Iris bed consists of a row of Daylilies down the center of the bed, flanked by Irises on the front side (along the driveway) and the backside. There. I think that explains it better.

I know some have said we should send a wish list, but I just feel really tacky doing that for some reason. Besides, it's always a nice surprise when you don't know what extra's you might get. It's also gotten me some really nice ones that I didn't think I'd want by the pictures. Then when they bloom, I'm really happy with them.

Usually on my wish list if I send one, it is more of what I ordered.
This year sent many customers my introductions as bonus unless 90% were TB then did not send any SDB as bonus

Very happy with my Snowpeaks order.
IDee's plants are always fat and do well.
I have a TBI that looks like it will bloom within next week.I have no idea which it is.This was an iris from someone else marked Afternoon in Rio.It looks like a misslable so I will send a pic when it blooms.So strange for first week in Aug.
I would almost callit a rebloomer.

I almost missed it when weeding.
I'll start a July-August iris thread.
