Something like over 200, but mostly in pot ghettos. For the sake of my sanity (and water bill, and overall to declutter the garden) I need to cut that down.

You're going to be awfully busy planting all those incoming irises this summer!
Evaluating an iris seedling, hopefully for rebloom

I like this answer, because I have too many, but if I keep ordering more, I must not have had enough.

Taking a look at my iris lists in the database and noting that I'll have to revise the "want" list. I've gotten a few Whistling on the list...except for one that I really want and that has come down somewhat in price. Lynda Miller's NINJA WARRIOR. Sent an add-on request to Tom at MAG.

I have about 540 though I lost a few this winter but still don't know how many. So far for sure, I lost 2. I also have 21 seedlings visible with dreams more will be showing up soon.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

I have purchased about 85 irises and I have about 125 of my own seedlings. This year I showed some restraint and only ordered 4 irises (so far) after culling the same amount.

I'm going on record as saying, "I'm done!" (re: new orders) that is, except
for what's in the envelope going to Mr. Keppel. .
Hilarious!
