There is nothing prettier than an iris. Except a whole bunch of them together! Show us your clumps. I would dearly love to see your bed shots with other iris or plants.

I love this group. Two things I would change are...Witch's Wand and Captain's Choice would be moved to the front and the pallida would be exchanged for another. I have enough pallida on the other side of the quince. WW and CC are lost behind it.

I'll wait until I have some color to show, all of the bed shots I have on file have been posted too many times already.

What is the dark one on the right? Nice looking bed... Good choices together.

That's my Cheyenne, and you can't have her. I hadn't noticed that she got into the picture until I uploaded it here.

That's an interesting Pink Plicata, what's it's name?
