I thought it would be interesting to see what others would like to add to their wish list of irises. My list would be (hopefully the names were correct, looked on eBay):

Supreme Sultan, Ziggy, Dazzling Gold, Every Which Way, Bronze Peacock, Cajun Cooking, Rustler, Chippewa Brave, War Chief, Cloud Ballet, Samurai Warrior, Sultry Mood, Cajun Spices, Role Model, Aztec Art, Cape Perpetua, Margaritaville, Bonus Light, Lady of Mine, Blueberry Bliss, Light shine, Saturday Night Live.

I am sure there will be others I will want to add, but for now that's a started list.

Some nice ones, on both lists ! It would take too long to list all of the ones I'd like to grow, so I'll just have to say there are two that I would do almost anything to find (although it's likely both are extinct Crying ), "Illinois" (Hall), and "Lyndon", (Lapham)

I can only list my TB wish list. All of my others would be way too long.

number one must have is Seasons in the sun followed by I Pink I Can, Montmartre, Jealous Guy, Chantilly Bride, Don't Stop Believing, Strawberry Shake, Platinum Jubilee, Main Street, Multnomah Falls and Waterline. That is ten. It is hard to make choices but I am really getting space challenged. I have spotted an area that I will be making another iris bed to plant in next year. The area that gets a lot of sun is not really big enough to grow more than approximately 16 different ones. Some on my wish list are new and I am hesitating on buying them until I hear that they are good growers and survivors in several planting zones.

I want to add a couple of MTB's like Moose Tracks and Carla Beth.

What do I want? Oh heavens, sooooo many.
Of tall bearded must haves: Blyth's Tuscan Glow, Electric Candy, Gallic Softness; Painter's Double Chocolate; Spoon's Dan Laing; Johnson's Seasons In The Sun; Burseen's Maggie Beth, Dewuc Whatic (plus too many to list).

But more than any I really really really would like to find Pinkston's Owyhee Amethyst, which has been impossible so far.

Of medians: There are quite a few Blyth's I really like, but it is hard to find vendors that are carrying them.

My lists are so long I have to be content with the ones I have and am getting soon. I need to take a break from ordering or asking for anything for a year of two. Well, the pocketbook is really what need a break. Whistling

Bonnie, I have you on the share list for Platinum Jubilee. Hoping for a 2016 increase to send you.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'

Zencat - I can relate!
I'm looking to next season to see if I get more increases so I can trade!
I also satisfied a lot of wants (mine and others' )this year. :)

Zero Hour is really nice looking Tom. If you don't have Thundery or Dragon Dance in two years, I should have some to send your way. (Delayed gratification I know).

Can I say how great it is that we can plan so far in advance with each other? Two, 3 and even 4 years in the future isn't too far for us.

I was going wax poetic (prophetic?) but I make myself weepy over the blooms to come. Hurray!

There are soooo many that I'd like to have but to narrow down to the most wanted, I'd have to say Keppel's Overview, Reckless Abandon, Joviality, and Noble Gesture, Kerr's Rainbow Shadow and Queen's Circle, Ghio's Core Values, Pontificate, and Accessible, and too many Blyth's to count. I really hope I have good increase this year. I will be ready to trade next year Sighing!

I found a few more I would like to get. They are: Carnival Ride, Class Ring, Lovely Senorita, Cinderella's Coach, Snow Shoes, Indian Sunset, Surfer's Dream.

I am open to trading with some of the fellow forum members. I just don't know the names of the ones I have in my yard as they were planted when I was around 2 years old with out any name tags.

Bonnie -- I think I can send you Chantilly Bride this year. Let me check her tomorrow. Multnomah Falls is also a possibility -- I'll get back to you on that.

Tom -- the only one that I have on your list is Hollywood Star, and I just got her last year, so it'll be a while before I can share. Sad

Eric -- I have Queen's Circle, and I'm pretty sure she needs to be thinned. Let me check tomorrow and get back to you. I also have Accessible -- but I moved her last year, and I don't know if she has increased enough to divide. I'll check on her tomorrow too.

Richard -- I have a couple of Irises on your list, but they're too new to share yet. Again -- I'll check tomorrow and see what things look like.

Peggy -- I have Dangerous Mood. I'm sharing it with someone else this year -- I'll see if I have enough to share twice. Big Grin



Thoughts become things -- choose the good ones. ([url=www.tut.com]www.tut.com[/url])
