The first ones to bloom and show the bud colors are the ones that have been here for years. Lots of stalks now and many of the new ones also have stalks.The second photo is of ones that open a white with a bluish tint. More pics to come as they open. Smiling

A couple more opened today. These have been here several years.

I divided this clump last year and replanted in my back garden. I noticed the stalks are shorter but in time they will get to medium height. I never kept tags when first collecting iris so not sure what the name of it is.

That is going to be a lot of blooms
If you would have a mind at peace, a heart that cannot harden, go find a door that opens wide upon a lovely garden.

Still waiting for others to open but here is another pic with more of the whitish ones opening up.
Looks like Backdraft and Happenstance will be opening soon. Smiling

A few more opened this morning Big Grin

Tropical Delight - not what I expected and doesn't look like what was pictured when I purchased it. Mistake?


Nordica


Not sure what this one is. Any guesses?

Gotta move it in the fall.

No clue on the Pink, Julia -- sorry.

But I loved seeing your *Nordica*. I think this is one of the greatest whites! It's a true, pure white, great substance to the petals and when I was searching for a white, I wanted one with bright orange beards. Nordica sure has that! Plus -- it loves to grow and bloom!! My favorite white! Lovey dubby

Last year I was looking for some ruffly whites and thanks to all Thumbs up for their suggestions. I have not been disappointed in any of them that have opened so far. I still have a couple more whites to open yet.

Mystery solved on what was sent to me as Tropical Delight but turns out it is actually Power Point. The seller looked at my photos and identified it.
Thank goodness it was solved. Now to correct all my photos and maps. He will be sending me Tropical Delight.

Power Point

I almost thought I had another wrong one when I saw the blue tint on this one but it is correct.

Winterfest - definitely a blue tint and it opened with 3 blooms at once. Nice.
