Think he used to have tours, don't know about now. Have corresponded with him by mail looking for a specific Iris and he was very helpful. Smiling

You are very lucky Debra! I have really come to appreciate his creations...and your photo of Have A Goodun with that fat rusty brown beard has just put me over the edge. I hope you plan to have a bed dedicated to Burseen iris! That would make quite an interesting show! nodding

Oh -- me too, Marilyn! That is just gorgeous. And as I am not making a wishlist this year -- as everyone knows -- I'll probably completely forget about it by next spring! Whistling

Good golly Rob... You got my heart beating faster with the mention of someone taking orders early... Maybe someone could whisper it to me, since we're not mentioning who it is Hilarious!

Now, y'all have me thinking I need to put Snow Spoon, Cosmic Celebration, Bluebeard's Ghost and Blackbeard's Daughter together near Witch's Wand.

Yep.. 'Bluebeard's Ghost' is also on my wish list... and I love yellow and white together.. Throw a feathery horn on it, and I'm there!

I love the way the beard goes from blue to gold on 'Bold Statement'.

The orange beard on 'Leading Light' makes the center glow, don't you think?

Talking about an orange beard on a pink iris look at Dazzling Sarah, a 2006 Burseen, I think



This is one iris that the photos do not do it justice. Much lovlier in person, er flower.

I'm liking Dazzling Sarah! *Blush* Nice lace and ruffles. Is that a touch of blue on the falls at the end of the beard?

yes, it is. And I would have thought with such a strong orange beard it would not have that subtle blue/lavender wash on the falls. Some irises beckon from across the garden but DS will wait until you are a bit closer and then stop you in your tracks. It is dazzling.

Sherry - whisper (Wild Iris Rows) whisper

Just got Bold Statement this year - look forward to the bloom!

Marilyn - that is me with the Have A Goodun, but Debra with the luck to live by Burseen. He has sooooo many I like, and soooooo many it is hard to find pictures of. Guess I'll have to buy them and see what blooms! Hilarious!

Love Dazzling Sarah there Bonnie! Lovey dubby

I would really like to have Bettern Beer, but it doesn't appear to be available commercially.

It sounds lovely, Debra, but I do not know a source for it other than Burseen himself.

I hadn't realized Tom Burseen was deaf and only takes correspondence. I wonder if he has a catalog of his own iris? Think I may write and inquire.......
