Sky and Sun is a beauty, Susan. I got mine last summer from an ATP member and I cant wait to see it bloom. My Daughter of Stars multiplied a bit so I had a hard time in finding extra space to plant it even after I had shared with four different gardeners. I took the last two little clumps and planted them on the north side of the house. They never get any sun there... none at all. It was just a holding place for them and yet they bloomed and re-bloomed like crazy. I sure enjoyed sitting next to the window early in the morning to watch the new buds opening. Gorgeous iris. I don't grow Uncle Charlie but a gardening friend does. It is a medal winner and well deserves that honor!

I don't have too many of their creations. Confused

I started out with "Uncle Charlie" in 2008, the first year I bought iris and it was one of 9. It has been a fantastic grower and real beauty; especially close up.



2010

Sky & Sun
Silent Wings

2011

Twiggy

Directly from their garden when I visited.

Daughter of Stars
Lady of Leoness
Zee

2012

Little John

2014

Maslon

Raspberry Silk

My favorite is "Zee", followed by "Sky & Sun"

I know, sooooo many beauties! I just got Tropical Shoals this summer but I have seen it in a garden in south AR and yes it is a light blue that leans to turquoise in color. If it blooms this spring, should I say when it blooms this spring, I will take photos and let you know its color in my garden. I got Teagan, Tropical Shoals, Miss Meredith and Blues Clues to see if I could introduce some turquoise blooms in my garden. I was sent Rich Blanquet as a bonus and I think it is also in this color range. Once Winterberry knows what you are looking for they will discuss the irises that may fit your wishes and bonuses will be in that category also.

The problem for me is that they are creating sooooo many more beauties every year! and I cant have them all!

Good to know that it is running true to color. I really think I will get Tropical Shoals this year, while everyone else is buying up Karen Jones (that other turquoise beauty!).

Between Stout's and Winterberry I may go broke this year.

And don't forget Sutton Iris Garden. In the past few years they relocated to Idaho, lost both parents and have tried to get their business up and running again. They are hybridizers and we need to support them. They are great to work with and work with you on a personal basis. and they make some great irises too. Keep them in mind. Their site does not reflect nearly the irises they have but it gets better every year now. I had seen one he had for sale in years past, Golden Apricot, and it was no longer on his web site. I emailed him to see if he still had it. he did and sent it to me and did not charge me for doing so. I will shop Winterberry and Sutton this year.

Leslie, I used to have a horse named Sari, but I sold her. Otherwise I would be tempted to get Sari's Dance. I'm fighting to keep my wish list short as I know I'll want to go crazy once the new introductions are made. Drooling

Bonnie - I planted 2 Snow Peas this past summers, and will have to see how they do in the spring. The little guys are looking
good now. Will keep you in mind!

I have problems as to hybridizers as I keep order lists by category, not hybridizer. We mainly grow Spoon's medians like all other hybridizers.

I realize I forgot two, both that I can't wait to see bloom in my garden next spring:
Sky and Sun
Silent Wings

How did I forget those? They glared at me for such an error while I worked in the garden this afternoon. Glare Hilarious!
