That confirms my impression that there is no single supplier that specializes in Burseen irises. I guess we have to 'shop around' if we want to add a variety or Tom's creations to our collections. Sticking tongue out

I just looked up the rest of the ones you listed that I had not looked at earlier. Wow the beard on Elvis Dreamer is wild...and beautiful! That one will be another contender for my wish list! Smiling I just have to post this one for the others...so they don't miss it!

I noticed that a lot of the Burseen irises are missing photos in the database. I hope that when they bloom you can take some photos and add them to the database!

Thanks for the information on your sources for these irises! I tip my hat to you.

I love Mercy Marci too!!

The colors on Cowabunga are stunning! That's one I had overlooked!

On another note....this is not a Burseen iris...but I forgot to add it earlier because although I bought it last year it hasn't bloomed yet. I bought it specifically because of the fantastic beard! The color balance in the beard isn't the best...but here are two photos from Jedlicka's Blue J Iris and from Schreiner:

Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! That would be fun! Maybe that would get my husband to have some shred of interest in my irises! ...but probably not, he'd rather just go to the game!

That's like trying not to breathe Mary Ann. If you don't breathe you turn blue, fall over and then breathe a whole lot. Soooooo...... look or turn blue, fall over and buy a whole lot! I am speaking from experience.

What a great pic of Elvis Dreamer you posted Marilyn! And yes, I will add my pics to the database when they bloom. Smiling

And there is Edge of The World again. I really must add that one to my list! Drooling
