The first one came to my mind is GYPSY ROMANCE. I love the sheen on this one.

Golden Panther is a very good grower and consistently blooms each spring.

Ginger Ice is another good grower and consistent bloomer, also a good parent.

Gambling Man is one of my favorites Not only a good grower and bloomer, but very enjoyable in the garden.

Got The Picture is another good grower and bloomer here. Gotta love it.

Golden Panther (Please ignore the weeds!) It has been a reliable bloomer even in part shade. It blooms every year. I have had this one for quite a while now.

Green & Gifted...some might not love the subtle coloration, but it has the most perfect FORM. i did a cross with neutron dance...it hasn't bloomed as it is in too shady an area.

Gladiatrix bloomed from 5-13-2019 to 5-25-2019 for its first year.



Goodnight My Dear was a late bloomer, starting on 6-15 for its first year.

Jane, is the Lexington Iris Show cancelled? So sad, I have several gardens that I planned on visiting this Spring. Sighing!

That is a beauty, I looked it up and was guessing that Decadence might be in the background. The other parent is Glamour Pants.

It's still in a pot, but I see a stalk on it!

'Gypsy Romance' is probably my favorite iris starting with a 'G,' but I really like 'Garden Spot."
