In light of the situation at Napa Iris Gardens and the fact that this may be their last year open, what are you ordering from them, and which Painter irises do you already have?

Now the email I got from them said "2018 brought several changes - most notably was a cut back in our normal fall replant due to health and age issues. Consequently we are only offering our own present and selected past introductions for 2019." And they note that their gardens will be closed to the public. No where does it say this is their last year, only that they didn't get iris other than their own replanted.

I wish them well, and restored health. I also hope they will open again next year. They are still actively hybridizing so hope they at least go the route that Keith Keppel did and have sales of a small stock of iris.

I did order some this year from Napa - mostly to replace iris I have lost, such as Rum and Coke, Teasing Tiger and Chocolatte. I did pick up another Cherokee Blaze because it always was outstanding in bloom here.

Lilli - hope you find French Lavender. It is a very good grower and the blooms are large and sturdy.

Evelyn - Spice Trader is so much more awesome in the garden than in pictures. It really is a show off. Big Grin

The only Painter iris I have is Fashion Magic, but I'd like some more. Perhaps they may discount their sales?

Leslie ~ Thank you for your comments. I did say that this *may* be their last year open, though I certainly hope not. With health issues, one cannot predict the future, and I wanted everyone to have a chance to get what ones they like and are available. They will probably be operating on a limited scale and may not have these varieties next year.

I am one to put off ordering, and then sometimes I miss out on one (or more Whistling ) that I really really wanted. I try to be conservative in ordering due to my current space available and my ability to get them planted.

Thank You! for your comment about Spice Trader. I am really looking forward to its bloom.

Looks like I only have 3 Painter irises:


'Valentino' is the only one that has opened for me. Looking forward to them all!

'Spice Trader' and 'Chocolatte' are on my wish list!

Thank you Evelyn,
I had Jumpin Jack Flash at one time until we hired someone to help weed, and he took it out! Grumbling
He has never been back here to "help"!

Oh no! Sighing! When mine gets big enough, I will be happy to share with you. This will be the first year for it here.
