Mine, the real stitch witch bloomed too, but in the rain so I'll have to wait for the next bloom.

I'm really partial to solids when it comes to irises but I really like this one. Stitch Witch should work well with my current favorites in white and purple.

Clump shot soon? Thumbs up

I have two plicatas that look similar, one is more blue and one is more purple. The purple one bloomes earlier then the bluer one. The bluer one just opened (the same time yours did), so I think that one is the stitch witch. I know one is supposed to be it, wasn't sure which one. But anyway. They are pretty.

This clump isn't great. It's in a very neglected flower bed at my house. I can try to get a good clump shot at Damon Gardens.

I have two boys (ages 2 and 1) and a separate garden site for Damon Gardens, so my house beds are often left to fend for themselves. Smiling

Oddly enough I understand how that works lately. If it doesn't rain I'm going to try to put a little time in "my" garden this afternoon... nodding
