We are having a major storm today. The garden is full of new blooms. I brought some in the enjoy before they are dashed😭. I have known:
Quaker lady, Indian Chief, honey glaze, champagne elegance, immortality, footloose, burst of joy( ?). Anyone wanting a tuber or two or three ...+++Lol -of IC, HG, CE, Immortality , let me know. The small blue/purple reblooms grows in sun or shade, rarely rots, grows like a weed. Smells wonderful. It is at least 50 years old. I would say it is a historic but has no ID. The extra tall pale lavender has no ID. Planted in the 60s I have in abundance. I have an extra tall hardy Yellow not shown here that may be Alice Harding. Also in abundance I started growing Historic's because they tend to be rot resistant Easley SC

Lovely bouquets, Kats. It is storming here in AR as well. Will storm thru the rest of the day off and on. Open blooms are more or less destroyed. Your irises are very cheerful. Thanks for posting the photos.

Beautiful I love you bouquet! While I don't have any antique irises I usually grow old heritage roses. I appreciate their ruggedness and romantic delicate blooms, so I appreciate anyone who loves and tends historic's.

We're having a storm here too In Oklahoma. Powers out and it's supposed to get pretty close to freezing but it's been a really beautiful day Smiling Happy Easter!

Ok, so I want to get this straight bc I love these --
Quaker Lady is to the left of Indian Chief in Pic 1? Is it fragrant?
What is the pink iris to the left of it (Pic 1) with the orange-tipped beard?
What is the light blue iris that is super tall?

Your assortment of iris vases are great! I am always on the lookout at the thrift store for tall vases -- so perfect for those stems!
