Well, let's begin by recognizing right off the bat that there is no hope for me! I have no doubts about it, and I am the first to admit that I am addicted to irises. So, that being said, I'm wondering how many irises have you oredered this year already, and are you all done ordering for the year????

My total ordered to date is 45.
17 new intros, counting 2 bonuses from Mid America
My plan is to stop here, but I'm waiting to hear back from one vendor who hasn't responded to my e-mail.
I wanted to order from Rocky Top, but 3 of the 4 that I wanted were already sold out, so I didn't order just one.
(YET)

Let's hear it, fess up! No hiding your data. (kind of like hiding the bottle) Rolling on the floor laughing

I have only ordered only 3 so far. That brings me up to about 55 different varieties now on my 1/2 acre lot. Not to mention 200 seedling daylilies that I got to make a bed for. Don't know what I would do with 45 more, Tom. I could probably figure out something though. Whistling I guess I need some sbd's which I really don't have.

I am being SO good -- one order from Mid-America -- eight purchased, one bonus added.

I truly don't know what I've got coming in trades, postage Iris, etc. -- I think that's a good thing!!

Ken ONLY 3! Although you did qualify that with a "yet" so there may be hope for you. You will have to tell me how to get daylily seeds to grow. I made some crosses a few years back got seeds, and couldn't get them to grow. Maybe that's a good thing.

Goodness. I wish I had the garden space for 100!

I have ordered 7 ensata, 2 species cross, 2 Dwarf, 2 Table, 3 IB, and 7 TB. There is suppose to be a bonus or two as well from one vendor. I am waiting until Schreiners summer sale to fill anymore gaps. Smiling

Mary Ann, you need to get on the stick and order some more! You know you want to! I'll have to call in Brad with some of those great pictures if you don't get moving! Now I better get outside and mow the lawn, it's finally a day without rain, sun shine even, but more rain tomorrow.

OK, Rob, this is what you do. You have these neighbors who are plant distroyers right??? Grumbling Well, when they go on vacation, you bury a hose to their house, and connect it to your drip irrigation system. Problem solved, now go order some irises! Rolling on the floor laughing

Only two ordered at the moment from Keith Keppel, and one of those is 'thanks' to a photograph posted by Brad, so HE is a good encourager, too, Tom. Whistling Have a small order planned for week after next from another vendor, and that is it for now. My addicti...um, deepening interest in Iris is just beginning, so I can still quit anytime...maybe...if I stop looking at and bookmarking all those websites with those lovely, lovely...hmm...Gotta go weed whack the yard or something.

Uh-huh, I've noticed. Sticking tongue out But I think the lessons learned from Daylily Fever might keep the delirium of Iris Fever to manageable levels. (or is that a case of 'famous last words?' Rolling on the floor laughing )
