Wow Tom -- you have a lot of neutrals!! Thanks to you, I have Tango Amigo -- hope she blooms this year!! Just so happens, it was my pick of your group here -- although Haunted Heart and a couple of others *spoke* to me!

I like a lot of neutral soft colors in the garden the past few years I have been adding a lot of Whites and light pinks, I think they make everything around them with bright color really pop out they are good to use beside real dark flowers they play off each other well and there are some with really unique neutral colors out there that go well with anything here are some good ones from the past couple years .
Brad - Have you had any issues with "Famous Last Words"? It has struggled mightly for me. I got it as a bonus from Joe Ghio. The other irises from that order have taken off (Enjoyment, Engagement Ring, Cardinal Rule, Polite Applause). I like his stuff the best of the current crop of hybridizers.
