This is the end of my bloom season. My aggies and pokers are starting to bloom and I have buds on my daylilies.
My last newbie to bloom this year is Oh James (Barry Blyth 1995). I planted it with Puccini thinking they would look nice together but Puccini had nearly finished blooming by the time Oh James started.

Blenheim Royal. A lovely purple but the blooms are often on an angle

Devil May Care
Mer Du Sud (Cayeux 1997) is the bluest iris I grow in the medium to dark blue tones. It isn't as blue as my camera is capturing but it isn't far from it. I remember adjusting the colour to be closer to reality when I added photos to our database. I like the paler patch on the falls just under the beards.
Some more photos of My Tasha...
The beards are orange and pink except for the tip which is cream and pink. They look more orange than pink.
This photo shows the branching. There are 2 separate rhizomes planted together with a stalk each.
The blooms are quite large and well spaced
I have 2 more irises from the same nursery as My Tasha that bloomed for the first time this year. Diamond Necklace (John Charles Taylor 2013) is a bit more pink when the flower first opens and then fades to peach.
When I purchased Diamond Necklace, I received June Brazier (Graeme Grosvenor 2000) as a gift. I started getting excited when I saw how many buds were on the stems. June Brazier is a beautiful gentle blue bloom that fades as the bloom ages. I love it and I have been photographing it everyday It has 6 branches plus the bloom at the top and most of the sockets are doubles. I was gifted 2 rhizomes which have both bloomed.

It's the first iris I notice when I walk out my front door
