Oh my gosh Jan... I can't even think about next year until I get what I've got in the ground (or at least half of them!). I'm sure as soon as someone posts a picture of something wonderful, my avaricious self will covet and lust after whatever bright and shiny Iris is put before my eyes.. Just sayin' Rolling on the floor laughing
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

With Leslie and Sherry both wanting Clydesdale,
I had to look it up!


Marky Smith has come up with some dramatic hybrids!
I'm hoping to see her Lakota bloom this spring.

It's too early for me to start adding to my wish list. In the winter when the snow if flying, I add everything I see to the list, then when spring comes and it's time to order, I look at the list and think, Why is that one on my list???? I really start getting serious about the list when I see the new introductions. I have so many new introductions from last year that didn't bloom this spring, I should have a nice show next year if that darn rot doesn't get to nasty. Plus I should have a bunch of seedlings bloom next spring. At least I hope so, I need to get some weeded out so I have room for the new seedlings coming next spring.
Enlightened by Sutton has been on my list for a while, but they haven't had it for sale since it's introduction year. It's a dark purple luminata with yellow edges.

Sutton's did move the garden from CA to ID. So it may be awhile before some plants are listed again.

But a nice list Richard. I will have to check in the spring, but may have Gypsy Romance for you. My pretty Celtic Lady seems to be suffering a bit.

Bonnie - I may be able to help you out with Tracking next year ..... which means you will order it as always! Hilarious! Hilarious! Some day you will quit ordering the ones I have plenty of!!! Smiling

I really want Hummingbird's Blessing as well, but I never seem to get it in time from Rainbow. Mordor and X-Files are MUSTS.

Finding all my post it notes, small pieces of paper, note pads, and notebook paper means I have to get organized. *Blush* I do have a partial list of "wants" in the computer so I guess I can take some credit for some organization. I also have bunches that are starred on ATP.
The one Iris that I know I have to have is Jeanne Clay Plank.

Richard, you can take Dracula's Kiss off you list. That's the one I sent you, and I might have a few more that are on your current list. I just need to see if they are dividable.
