|Hi I am a new member as of today!|
This is my rare treat iris
I am seeking a plicata or bi tone iris
that has sturdy stems so I do not have to stake it
and large ruffled blooms as I enjoy
photographing iris and showing them to
nursing home residents along with my other
perennials such as daylilys, clematis, phlox,
and perennial salvias and coneflowers.
does anyone have a stand out , show stopper iris that is as beautiful in form and size and colors like Rare Treat and where to buy it
that would be a great addition to my zone 8
Sheris healing flower garden?
I want to photograph it as photography is my hobby.
Here is Rare treat open today at
Thank you for any responses

|Awesome pictures. Welcome to All Things Plants, the best forum anywhere.|
I'm in Zone 8a Fort Worth Tx. It doesn't get as cold here as a lot of irises like. I grow a lot of Tom Burseens irises that is a local hybridizer. You can look at my post to see a lot of what I grow here. My post is titled: "Whats blooming this year".

|Welcome, Welcome....we love new members. Google Superstition Iris Gardens and Rockytop Iris Gardens and order their catalogs. They have great selectios, good prices, and probably list a number of nice plicatas.|

|yes, I like the intermediate irises like 'Rare Treat'. You can add A tall bearded iris like 'Jesse's song' which will bloom later & have the same coloration.|
