I wish I was limited to liking only these 5 Sighing! , but there's so many more I want too. Then Paul Black's intros have some I want too.

It appears that Trending starts out darker and then fades some.

I see that Easy On The Eyes has been crossed with Mood Ring, I'd predict there are some interesting ones that will come from that cross. Lovey dubby

There sure are a lot of beauties again this year. I particularly like Miller's Fruit Slices and I have a long list of their Blyth intros that are simply must-haves! Sighing!

I like Blyth irises, but many of them are early bloomers, and they sometimes get frozen in the spring here, so I've been trying to have more of the later bloomers.

i have the opposite problem, tom. if mine are mid to late, the latter ones get fried. so i've been trying to add earlier and rebloomers to my collection. some of my blyth's, though, are blooming now. ' capt. thunderbolt' , 'absolute cute' ( i think has a pregnant fan), and 'lucy lovejoy' ( which tried to bloom in late november/early december).

Yes, I can understand how your weather makes the early ones best for you. Tempo Two had very hot summers so the earlier ones did better there. I try to plant my earliest ones near the house where there's a warmer micro climate. I'm not sure if my Captain Thunderbolt has survived, it had some rot issues last summer. If it's still alive it will be a while before it blooms again, that's for sure. It's such a beautiful one!

So, I guess I have to (finally) add Capt, Thunderbolt to my list! Those stripes!

(blushing) I Do have it. (mumbling) I have too many irises.The Capt. is in a bed that's scheduled to be dug up and re-done. I don't think he bloomed last season.

Daphne, it's like having too many children, if that's possible. Oh no, I forgot about the Captain and left him in the sandbox at the park! There are others I've forgotten, I'm sure.
I've also ordered a couple of others that the database says I already have! D'Oh! As soon as it stops raining, I'm going to make an on-the-ground inventory of what's actually growing out there! I also need to order more plant tags, and am very happy to see that my 2 yr old seedling cross bed is thriving!
