Is this fragrant in anyone else's garden? Mine is wonderfully so.

I don't have it. But it's gorgeous! And if it comes with a great fragrance I better look for it. I need some oranges.

Polly -- I can send you rhizomes of Savannah Sunset -- mine need to be thinned badly this year! And you know -- I've had that Iris for years and I can't tell you if it's fragrant. When I go out today, I'll sniff it!! Green Grin!

The results of the sniff test are in -- it smells WONDERFUL!!! How could I not have been aware of that all these years!! Whistling

Here's a clump shot picture I just took a few minutes ago. As I said -- mine need to be thinned badly, and I'll happily share for postage.

Thanks Rita -- I've admired your Iris photos for quite awhile now. Thumbs up

You're on, Polly! I'll let you know when I'm thinning and you can tell me how many rhizomes you want. Don't need any money for the Iris, just postage depending on the size of the box. I always ship priority -- OK?

Polly: I received this plant a couple of years ago from Mary Ann and it is thriving! I always sniff plants to see if they are fragrant because I do treasure that quality in my garden.
