So far, it's been a beautiful, if slightly puzzling garden year. The SDBs are about a week behind this year although our winter was mild for the most part. The iris reticulatas bloomed in February.

So today, three new SDBs popped up: one is 'Love Bites,' one is 'Color' (according to my Masterlist, but I am not sure), and one is a mystery. I would appreciate any guesses. It looks a bit like 'Hocus Pocus' to me, but I do not have 'Hocus Pocus' on my masterlist.

Voldy's Mink is spectacular as well as your pic of Gingerbread man. I am going off to see if Voldy's Mink can be found. It looks like one of those Irises I would dig something up just to plant.
Your mystery iris looks like What Again to me.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

Thumb of 2021-03-30/urania1/5143cf This looks correct.

SDB 'Color'
Thumb of 2021-03-30/urania1/697c6f Color has a bright orange beard, and doesn't have blue on the end. Maybe Irish Halo?



Mystery SDB
Thumb of 2021-03-30/urania1/6e149c This looks more like Blueberry Tart.

Great irises and great images too. Hurray!
Nice to see bearded irises in bloom. Mine are still at least a month out.

Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!

Two new irises in the garden today: SDB 'Crystal Ship' and Iris x germanica. The germanica has been on the verge of opening for a week. It would choose a rainy day to open. It is a floppy little iris to begin with and the rain makes it look positively limp.

I think the last one is what my Mom had so many of. Yes she is most to blame for my obsession. As a little girl I would just stop and stare for long periods of time at their beauty.

I think it might be SDB 'Sprite's Nightingale.' I may order from Stout just to see if it matches this one.
