At the Iris Society of Dallas Sale, this one seem to just leap into my hands. It wasn't me, I think it was otherworldly intervention or some such. Whistling Whistling I cannot find a photograph of it anywhere. Anybody grow it that has a photo they would post for me?

Yes, Mary Ann...(sad sigh)...I had no control over it...the pot was just there...in my hands...with no conscious decision on my part...and, of course, since it was there...I had to pay for it and take it to the car...that's in the rules... Whistling Whistling Whistling

Moral imperatives prevent us from putting them back once we have them. I've turned my back on a cart in more than one HD and had plants jump in! Whistling

Well they just know you all will take good care of them and so take matters into their own hands. Silly humans thinking we choose the iris....
