I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

They're not the same. According to HIPS:



(emphasis added)

They have confirmed photos of both and it know makes me think that my purple NOID is Crimson King rather than Kochii.


@Australis - Let me know if my Kochii is actually Crimson King. I will have a closer look at it when it blooms and take more photos.

Well, upon further inspection, they all seem to be fine, so I just left them where they were.


I'm glad your seedlings are OK. I keep mine in pots under cover until they are large enough to survive hail.

Will do, Robin. The pieces I got from you did bloom, but slightly off from my purple NOID, so it was not easy to compare. I'll see how they behave this year, as I moved them both at the same time so that they are right next to each other in the same conditions (clearly labelled, of course!).

It would be like locking the barn door after the horse is gone. nodding

They appeared to have survived...in fact the other plants did too. It was a lot of hail.

My, oh my! That is such a lovely bed Daphne! Lovey dubby


It's so nice to see irises in bloom. Hurray! It will be a while before I have any here, even though they could be early because of the mild winter.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

thank you robin and evelyn.

there are a few spikes about 12- 14" or so tall on 'autumn explosion', "by jeeves', 'capt. thunderbolt' (which already bloomed once in january ...a three-stalk wonder from 1 rhiz.), 'midnight seas,' 'fall empire', ib 'megglethorp' , and bb sorbet swirl' ( maybe ' winged commander'. won't know until it blooms; lost it's tag. [ Hilarious! haha along with 'naughty nights' on the eve of haloween.] tricksters may have been at work that night Shrug! D'Oh! but i,ve forgotten to replace signs...just remembered while writing this post).

Daphne, I've forgotten to replace some of my signs, too, ( D'Oh! ) and will have to wait until some of my irises bloom to see what they are. I know what I've bought, so I should be able to figure it out. But if they don't bloom? Maybe I'll be able to figure it out by a process of elimination. Crossing Fingers!

Nice ones Rob!
Beautiful Magnolia, Barbara. My early ones are done, but they put on a show this year. This is my favorite.

I've had a couple of sodden TB's try to open.. 'Filoli' and 'Edge of the World' are open, but not camera ready.
Several SDB's and an IB opened over the past couple of days.. Here are a few of them..

'Fern's Magic' (Stewart '09)

'Oregon Sunrise' (Stewart 2009)
Thumb of 2019-04-02/Henhouse/c9e82f

'Bee's Knees' (Blyth '94) ... such a tiny little thing..
Thumb of 2019-04-02/Henhouse/2c96b6

'Tessie the Tease' is loaded with buds
Thumb of 2019-04-02/Henhouse/1c5151

'Boo' (Markham 1971)
Thumb of 2019-04-02/Henhouse/9eb078

I believe these were all trades from members here.. So thanks so much... I've really been enjoying them!

I remember having better blooms on this when I lived in Los Altos, but it has pretty foliage, and looks good in partial shade.
