Thank You! Its the first time to have contact from Germany. As a painter I look to the colors - how they fit, how the colors sounds, how the sound
is more, how the more evolves new feelings, does the color speak, is its more or what disturbs. Therefore to say like or not to like is not enough.
I think the Painter`s at Napa have an artists sense.

Hello Meuser and welcome to the ATP iris forum! As a lover of color it will be hard to find another flowering plant that can give as much color, or combinations of color, and varied form as the iris.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

"Lover of Color" would be a nice name for an Iris....

They've been doing some nice work.. I got several this past year that I'm looking forward to. I should add that they sent beautiful rhizomes...

I keep trying to convince myself that I'm not a fan of red Iris, but they keep seducing me!
