Iris aholics definition of final = The last one I'm going to buy or plant this year:

= unless one comes along that I can't live without.

= Unless Schreiners has an un believable sale on, and several of those on my wish list are on it.

=Unless I drive by an abandoned house and some lonely irises are sitting there waiting to be resqued.

Feel free to add your "unless" comments Hilarious!

Unless you find yourself motivated by fall weather and build another iris bed, then feel you can't leave it there empty......

Unless someone has a great deal and I don't have the color yet...someones giving them away....
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

That sums it up well Tom!

By the way your red NOID is growing like wildfire. With about six inches of new growth it is definitely the fastest grower in the new bed.

I got my *final* order for the year this morning -- took the opportunity to order from Dee's Snowpeak Iris before it closes its doors.

I ordered For Lovers Only, Terracotta Bay, Thundering Ovation and Viking Dancer. Big beautiful healthy rhizomes -- and she included a bonus Iris as well.

Dee -- you're going to be missed in the industry. Thank you so much for taking such good care of your customers over the years.

I agree too. I hope you have a great trip Dee!
Leslie, that red NOID is a good grower, and has never had an issue with rot for me. I've lost track of all of the places I've sent that one, but it's getting spread around the US pretty well.

-Unless I can convince the grower to let me make just one more small order after their cut off date..
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
