If you could add only 5 more irises to your army of irises, What would yours be?

So far mine would be:

Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Ravenous')

Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Spiced Cider')

Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Copper Clouds')


Tall Bearded Iris (Iris 'Copper Clouds')

Oh dear, that would depend on when you ask me. Right now I would like reblooming iris, thinking about Breaking Point, Fashionista, Brides Blush, Skyhopper. I like the looks of Haunted Heart too. I can probably give a completely different list in an hour though.

Dark Universe. Unfortunately, Mr. Keppel has sold out of it (or maybe fortunately, because it is out of my price range).



Belgian Princess



Bashful Princess



Royston Rubies



Song of Silence (also currently out of my price range)

I saw Song of Silence 'in person' last year at Mid-America. It is really stunning.

Richard, I really like 'Copper Clouds', so much that I planted it last year. Don't think it will see blooms this year, though.

Andrea, 'Dark Universe' and 'Song of Silence' are very, very pretty, too. Lovey dubby

My top 5 wants are these:





Kanarowski's 'Gladiators Get Ouchies' and 'Zebra Butter' are unlikely to be available here, very few of his irises are, but I adore their unique looks:

Hilarious! Well done Tom! ...and enabling accomplished (again) William! Hilarious!

For today, my 5 most wanted irises would be Dark Universe and Song of Silence from Andrea's list and 'Gladiators Get Ouchies' and 'Zebra Butter' from William's list - would have put them on my want list just for the names, but turns out they're both very pretty too! Last one; MTB Moose Tracks to replace the one that rotted:


I haven't seen any of Kanarowski's irises for sale here, which is sad because he has a lot of really beautiful and interesting ones I would love to grow. ...and those names! Rolling on the floor laughing
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

Tom, I'm happy that you found your way to Mariposa Iris. Hurray!


Lilli, 'Moose Tracks' is really cute. I'm sorry it died for you. Sad
So far I only found a couple of Kanarowski's older irises here. Iris4U have sold 'Dancing Blue Koi' and 'Royal Jammies' in the past, not sure if they will do so this year. I guess we will need a lot of patience.

Gladiators Get Ouchies is an outstanding name. A darn fine looking iris too, which makes me wonder what possessed him to give it that name! Hilarious!

Placing number four though is:

I also have my eye on a few irises in Brad's threads about seedlings that haven't been release yet. I love the striped seedlings (I think these are Thomas Johnson's seedlings)

I waited too long to decide which of Keppel's 2019s to order. Dark Universe will have to be on next year's list perhaps.
