Did I get your attention? Well, I am guessing I will disappoint in that my volume will be muted this year compared to years past. Call it "Click Bait! Rolling my eyes.

I continue to lose garden space and plants. Some by design and others by neglect. I am cutting back because I don't have the time and there are other things to do. Maybe when I retire I will arrest this downward movement. The weeds are thick and nonstop. They have choked out quite a few irises. I have been moving the irises since April (Yes, I am sacrificing bloom this year in some cases as I move stuff around; but most of these moves are to "save" the cultivar (so I am starting a pot farm).

My first bloom was April 24th (Tessie The Tease). This beat my normal first bloomer "Rare Edition" by two days. A deformed "Roz" was next. Everything else came in May. Here are the pictures.

Nice to see you back on the threads Greg! Looks like Roz is a good grower. Innerst's medians seem to do well around here. Grindelwald especially just keeps growing. I had a mini Muggles explosion this year as well.

So no new iris going to be added for you in the near future? Must be hard to cut back with all the beauties you were growing.

Leslie - I did not even go to the club picnic last year which is a GREAT source for new irises (I usually get 10 plus eat time!!).

I lost both Muggles and Grindelwald and was hoping to replace them. My idea/dream for the "Innerst Collection" has taken a big step forward. My local club now has our Iris shows at the Hershey Gardens and we are in discussions to maybe start an iris plot/collection at their facility. Small steps at the moment, but it may come to be.

Greg - I can probably help you out with a small bit of Grindelwald and Muggles. I think of your collection whenever I come across Innerst iris.


Ooohhh! Love that Frosty!
