I know I haven't been on this thread for a long time. Sorry. Life interferes at times.

I had quite a bit of winter loss this past year, surprisingly. Although some of the ones I thought were gone forever, I have tiny bits of green coming back. So I am trying to be patient. I am certainly not going to have the blooms I have had in previous years, and it seems the losses I had were all on the west side of the house. They were all established clumps.

This first one should be Fuzzy Logic - but I can find no description of it, so any help confirming this would be appreciated. I have had several instances in the past with iris I have bought at sales being misidentified - and the sharp observers here have caught it. So please help me with this one, it's a small one.

Immortality - got this from Tom; and another No ID. (I actually stole this one from my sister who got it in a trade, had no clue what it was when I took it Whistling

Hi Jan. Welcome back -- glad to see you here again! Green Grin!

It's been a strange year -- we've all suffered losses -- some greater than others. We all seem to have one kind in common -- a soft rot that isn't the usual stinky kind. I'd check those established clumps, if I were you -- if you have this soft rot going on, then even the small "tiny bits of green" are at risk if you don't separate them from the rotting mother, and treat them.

It's good to see your Irises blooming! I can't help you with any IDs, but they sure are pretty!! Lovey dubby
