Paul, I think the pairing of For Lovers Only and Sea Power are perfect. One seems to enhance the beauty of the other. I love your photos!

I was looking at my 2014 bloom photos and remembered that Killarney Green SDB was the first iris to bloom for me in March. It beat the MDB's by a week.

This iris is of interest to me because I have had it as a noid for a long time. Thanks to a member on this site when I posted a picture of it this spring they said they grow one that looks identical. I got a start of a test plant that is of blooming size and will see if they are a match. If so it will then have the name Coral Chalice.

Your Judy Mogil opened so nicely! I love flatties. And I really need to get more historics. They make such nice clumps. Drooling over Spooned Blaze too!

Paul - such beautiful pairings of blooms. Love Sea Power with For Lovers Only.

Bonnie - now I can't wait to see my Killarney Green bloom.

Thanks all for the nice pics!!!

Does anyone out there grown Just a Kiss Away and That's All Folks? I have been wondering how they compare. I like them both, but have quite a few yellows and they seem similar, so I'm wondering if anyone has any information that would help me decide between the two. Even it you don't have both, I'd love to hear your opinions on them (growth, fertility, scent, substance, stalks, bud count, branching, and overall beauty) Thanks! Smiling

Rob, there was a plant vendor who held a Green Friday last year. I went to it and bought potted irises. The weather was crisp and refreshing and looking at the plants made me soooo happy. Unfortunately, I was the only customer there. They did not repeat the day this year. Everyone else was at a mall I guess. ???

Next year should have it the Friday before Thanksgiving so people who shop there have presents to give ON Thanksgiving.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
