I am re-doing the tree circle because the soil needs amending (too much clay - so the iris roots are running along the surface). That means a few need dividing too.

Let me know if any of you want one or more of the following (limited supply): Bumblebee Deelite, Frosted Velvet, Abiqua Falls, Orinoco Flow, or Gypsy Romance. Also World Premier.

Those are beautiful, Leslie. Saved from my self because there is no more room after planting all the lovelies with which I have been gifted this year or I'd be jumping all over this offer. Thumbs up

Abiqua is taken but you can have Bumblebee, Frosted & English. Send them to the same as before? Treemail me.

Someone hurry in and take them all...

I think I must have planted my self control, because I have lost it.

Rob - if it helps, only Gypsy Romance, Orinoco Flow and Footloose are left. Oh and Acoma, because I always have Acoma. Literally. I rescued it, and it rewards me by doubling every year.

My bad, English Charm. I was dividing Michigan Pride and went mental. Hopefully English is still on Debra's list. Smiling

Leslie -- I'm sitting on my hands and biting my tongue -- I would dearly LOVE to take you up on each and every one of those. But my beds are STILL not in order and I can't put any pressure on myself to get them done. I hope you have a couple left over next year, to share. Thanks for your generous offer. Smiling

I do, too. Someone gave me a rhizome this year, but I mixed it up with another. Planted both together so I could identify next Spring, but one is struggling and I might lose it. Happy Leslie had these available in case the struggling one is BD. But I like it for itsownself and having two ain't no bad thing. Smiling

Bumblebee is a cutie for sure. And all taken as of now. It is a fast grower so I am sure to have more to share in the future!

As for what is left - the purples. Orinoco Flow is a border bearded, but has very large blooms. I am a bit surprised no one has taken Gypsy, since it is magenta. And Footloose is a very early bloomer (blooms with the SDB's!), but then continues to bloom for quite awhile.

Linnea - please treemail me if you want any of these, or Acoma.
