I focused on Keppel, Ghio, and Black iris. There are just way to many to choose from out there. Blyth I got Samba Queen, Poster Girl, Rogue, Trader, and I'm Dream'n. Also Chanted...a little older SDB.

I had Sweet Geisha on my wish list, and for some reason, I didn't get it ordered. I like that one a lot too. Oh well, I'll have to wait until next year.

Turns out I got quite a few Blyth cultivars this year:

Broome Sunset
Cupid's Wish
Arthouse
High Master
Ruby Haze
Beach Dance
Pirate Ahoy
Spice Lord

Tom -- I don't have a list of the ones that you sent me -- if there are any Blyth in there, that would be in addition

Paul -- I also added Rogue this year -- but that's a Ghio, not a Blyth.....................

By the way, Barry Blyth has in the past updated his website with the new year's irises by Oct. 1st, and for the past few days I've been checking it several times a day. So far they have updated the narrative on the home page, and if you select "Introductions" there are three pictures of -- his grandchildren? Don't know -- with a heading "2012-2013 Introductions -- Coming Soon." So it should be any time now.
I'll go copy the link and put it here. This is the beginning of their spring season in Australia.

Betty, glad it's you getting that 100 degree weather and not me, Had enough of that this summer to last a while. You have a nice bunch of Blyth irises coming, can't wait for the pictures. I'm thinking I'll have some shipped again from Australia, as there are some I want and can't find in the US.

Mary Ann, the only Blyths in that bunch I sent you was Indulgance - 2005 and Tango Amego - 2007.

Paul, I planted Rouge Traider last year, but it didn't bloom. Seems to be growing a bit slow, but It sure is a pretty one, and I hope it blooms next year.

Tom I ordered some direct from him this year and was really happy with what he sent they have grown and increased a lot better than expected a couple of them bloomed in July which was a nice bonus. I would definitely order again from him if I can't find them in the states. These are the ones I am looking forward to seeing in my garden.

I hope you cool off soon so you can get them planted.

Hi, I was wondering what your best Blyth iris would be? A question for those that have been growing them several years.

That was MAGHERALIN, and I'm sure it looks more pastel than you would expect. That always happens here because it gets so hot and that bed is quite sunny most of the day. It was a gift plant from Rockytop back in 2010 and I have since given it away because I needed the spot for something else.
