I got that this year from my local member that is retiring to Florida. If it is marked correctly, I should have some to give you Leslie! (I was referencing "Edge of the World")

I am in love with brown beards! It seems that if it has a brown beard I like it! Glances is stunning, but I also like Enter the Dragon, Private Eye and Edge Of The World! Oh you guys are going to get me in trouble!!! Hilarious! Hilarious! Hilarious! But notice I keep coming back...I kinda like this type of trouble! nodding

I'm glad you're not looking Mary Ann Hilarious!

I can't wait to see Private Eye bloom this coming year (TY Tom!). I'm also looking forward to 'Glad'.

....and 'Blackbeard' too!

I keep seeing Blackbeard and it's calling to me. It's an older cultivar...so how's the form and substance?

Just got it this year, Marilyn... Seems pretty perky in the 1 gal pot.. It's got 6 offsets from the main rhizome already.

Blackbeard's Daughter looks good too.

I guess I'll have to wait for an updated report after spring bloom (I'm being optimistic since it sounds like it's very happy! Thumbs up ). That will give me plenty of time to order it! Hilarious!

I like super contrasting beards cuz they look like they are sticking their tongues out at you.
Don't make fear based decisions.

Blackbeard's Daughter really stood out for me. The picture is by the hybridizer J. Griffin (Griff) Crump, I just posted it to ATP (with permission). He is a really neat person to talk to. I tend to take a long lunch at bloom time to go visit his garden. Try to do this like three times during bloom. I unfortunetly did not make it at all this last year! Sad

Still love the color contrasts on Blackbeard's Daughter. Did yours bloom this year Greg?

No. They were all placed in a "bad" spot last year and did not get the proper attention. They all were moved into much better spots (This is all of the "Crump" irises I got from Griff).

Autumn Nectar did so well increasing that I split it into 4 and am expecting three to bloom in the Spring. "Pooh's Dream" is also doing well and should put on a show.

Okay, you made me look up Pooh's Dream to see if it was honey colored. Very pretty coloring. I bet it will be a showy clump.

I knew I had forgotten a couple of Burseen purchases. I also got Stolen Identity and Have A Goodun.

Just see the beards on Have A Goodun!

I have a fondness for Tom Burseen's Irises. His names are creatively 'suh-thun'; plus he is located about 30 miles from my house, making him practically a neighbor. Big Grin
It’s okay to not know all the answers.
