CANDY COLOURS
DON'T STOP BELIEVING
GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE
QUINTESSA
ZLATOVLASKA

I agree. We all order such different ones.

Might as well get the rest out of my system:
Stout:
Ancient Secrets
Backdraft
Burseeno Graphic
Cuz Ur Myon
Different Take
Gloriafied Glenn
Special Blend
Sweetwater Pie Burns

That bunch has many I am in super love with!

And finally Iris Sisters - where they do not include a Burseen as surprising as that may seem:
Black Olive
Cafe d'Amour
Chestnuts Roasting (finally!)
Electric Candy
Haunted Heart
Mysterioso (all increases belong to Rob)
Strawberry Shake (yay)
Tuscan Glow (oh oh oh)
Volcanic Glow

I haven't made any orders yet, but will most likely only buy new releases, unless some of my wishlist that I couldn't locate in the past show up somewhere.

Advances in hybridizing are happening so rapidly, that my iris
orders are fewer now, but newer and pricier.

That would be the same for me, Jan -- but there are some oldies but goodies that I still want. Michigan Pride is an example. Smiling
