Anyone know how the bloom season is progressing in Oregon?

I might have the opportunity to be out there during the week of May 10th, which I think would normally be late median/early TB time (more or less). But, I've heard that the bloom season is running two weeks, or more, ahead of average out there. Will the bearded irises still be blooming by the second week of May?

Kent, Brad may have an update by now. He's trying to schedule his trip. A few days back he said the same thing as you...around 2 weeks ahead of average.

Where did he make that comment? I don't think I've seen a post from Brad for at least a couple of weeks now?

My last conversation with Brad was a Tree-mail we exchanged as I was coordinating the trip to Superstition Gardens. I was trying to see if there was a chance we could meet up with him. I just went back and looked it up and the last time we connected was the 17th of March so it was longer ago than I remembered. Also I would have sworn he had made the comment about Oregon...but it was not on that tree-mail so now I'm wondering if I'm going crazy...I can't remember who said it....sorry!

I know Superstition just told me they were about 2 weeks ahead on bloom, so it wouldn't surprise me that the whole west coast is ahead. perhaps if you e-mailed Schreiner's Shrug!

Marilyn.. You are not going crazy and we talked this weekend Smiling and yes I did tell you that.


Kent.. It sounds like at this point or at least from a week ago they are quite a ways ahead of schedule in Oregon and were predicting peak bloom last week of April / 1st week of May but if they get a cold spell that could change things. You might send Kieth a email as it gets closer to the time to see how they are progressing.
