Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Immortality'), lauribob wrote:

This pure white, tall iris is beautiful, but it flops in my garden. I've never had an iris that needed staking before, and there are way too many other chores to do, beside the fact that an iris with a stake is just not a good look. I moved it from prime real estate to the 'wild zone'. It is very tall and is good for cut flowers if you catch them before they fall down.

Talking about Species Iris (Iris tenax), Bonehead wrote:

Native in the Pacific NW, west of the Cascades from Washington to California. Found in open fields and at forest edges. Forms large clumps from slender rhizomes. Flowers are usually a shade of purple, but occasionally are white or yellow.

Talking about Standard Dwarf Bearded Iris (Iris 'Oh Canada'), lilpod13 wrote:

Interesting phenomena with my Oh Canada. The first bloom of the season the past two years has got stuck and failed to open. Tom said that when the flowers are frozen, that can prevent opening, but our temperature has been above freezing. However, there has been a lot of moisture, rain, that could be causing some issue with the petals failing to separate. I'm asking if anyone else in our community has seen this since I haven't had any issue with any other dwarf iris sticking and ultimately not opening?

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Vibrations'), tabbycat wrote:

I made a new bed just for tall bearded Irises the Summer of 2016. I had to add sand to improve the drainage & ph but was ready to add plants by 2017. Ann M. in OK grows some beauties & she shared 6 varieties including 'Vibrations' with me in July 2017. They didn't bloom 2018 but put on some more fans so seem happy. I'll be watching for buds & blooms in 2019.

Talking about Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Orange Slices'), tabbycat wrote:

An experienced gardener of 'Tall Bearded Iris' in Oklahoma, Ann, traded this as 1 of 6 varieties she sent for my new Iris bed 7-19-17. I love the name & orange is a stand out color in any bed. It had to get settled in so made no flowers in 2018 but has multiplied to several fans so I'm expecting blooms this Spring. I can hardly wait!
