Musicality and Unfolding Dreams! Ghio's? He always has the best pinks. Looking forward to his catalog. But I may have to wait till next year for these beauties.

OMG.. I've just waded through 4 pages of eye candy! Some of these I'm hopeful to see in the spring, and was happy to see that many of them made my favorites list.
16-26C
13-9B- exquisite coloring
13-64A not only "bubblicious", but "ruffleicious" as well... nothing like a beautiful blue
13-63- yellow ruffles!
13-4 very interesting color blend
13-49A
13-49F!
12-39
12-3B yellow and blue together are my happy colors... love this one.

As for Joe's... I'll most likely only be ordering 'Unfolding Dreams' and 'Musicality'.. I'll be keeping orders down this year.. My bathroom remodel from hell has eaten up all my fun money..
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

I LOVE those Pinks, especially Unfolding Dreams and Musicality. Share the Love is my kind of bi-color and Thread the Needle has those pale lavender ruffled standards instead of the common purple and white rims.
Ghio has some real beauties! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for sharing the Ghio's. Wow!!!! Musicality is my favorite too. It almost appears double ruffled. Then Unfolding Dreams second. But Thread the Needle is interesting too because of the ruffle up the middle like the old tuxedo shirts Smiling Are all the blooms like that? Very beautiful either way.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

Brad, I like Whoa Nelly, too, because I can imagine myself saying that when seeing those blooms for the first time. Any or all of the names are yours if you want them. Smiling

I ordered Tagline last year and received Coin Flip and Fan Letter as bonuses. I'm hoping to see them bloom in the spring Crossing Fingers! This year I'm going to get Bullet Points as well. That one is too gorgeous not to have.
