The new iris orders will be arriving soon! Do you have some cultivars you are particularly looking forward to receiving? Please share a photo/link if possible and why! Smiling

Here are a few of mine:

SDBs:

SDB Forever Royal ---One of Chuck Chapman's. He describes it as "probably best of the 'Whenever' reblooming types...near continuous rebloom in my zone 4 garden." And I love the rich purple color! Smiling


SDB Bennett's Legacy ---Looks like a sweet little iris with bright color combination. If I understand correctly, this is a selection made by the late Bennett Jones many years ago and only recently introduced by Terry Aitken.


A couple of mid-size iris:

IB Jack of Clubs ---Also from Terry Aitken. I'm excited to find a mid-sized black iris! Smiling

BB Tagline ---Ghio. A very pretty, ruffly border bearded iris Smiling


Tall bearded (I splurged on a few new intros... *Blush* ):

TB Chinese Lantern Factory ---Gorgeous! Lovey dubby from Doug Kanarowski
https://wiki.irises.org/TbAthr...

TB Magic Ring ---Keppel. I love these rich colors!


TB On Deck ---Schreiner Mysterious!



Please share some of your highly anticipated irises! Smiling

Derylin, two pictures look good when expanded, but two did not. I wonder why? I did find Shockaholic and Space Signal in the Iris Encyclopedia:

I was eyeing Shockaholic, too! Maybe next year...

Laurie,
I'm sorry about the pictures.It was a spur of the moment decision to post ,and am not the most adapt at figuring out how to post pictures other than my own.I think I was tired from mowing and digging and was impatient to be done ,and didn't want to attempt to figure something out about the pictures.Brain overload for the day !:confused: nodding

That's OK Derylin! Glad you shared some pictures. Smiling A screen shot was a good idea---just not sure why some were fuzzy! Hilarious!

Every once in a while I take a screen shot and it's fuzzy for a few seconds. Then it clears up. I have no idea why.

I didn't order anything this year but I won four door prizes that I can't wait to get hold of:

Epic Romance (Blyth 2019) (sorry, no picture in database; it's in Mid-America's catalog)
I chose it because it is a very early bloomer.
I love neglectas.

It's pretty!

Stunning color!

Andrea, I bought Epic Romance last year at MidAmerica's end of year sale. Didn't bloom this year, darn it! But next year....

It's disappointing when an anticipated iris doesn't bloom - I had a newbie too that didn't bloom but instead put its energy into making increases. Next year should be good!

Glad you ordered Dark Universe - I noticed that Mid-America is sold out of it.

I don't have any new irises arriving soon but I am looking forward to seeing this year's catalogs which usually come out around September. I've seen a pretty Mel Schiller iris I am hoping will be included in her upcoming catalog

I just received a box about 3 days ago from Blue J. And planted 3 new ones: Tom Johnson, Rustler and Coral Chalice.
