The Sutton family has produced and is producing some really nice irises. Which ones do you have? Which ones do you still want?
These I have had for a year or more.
Star Dock
Two Thumbs Up
Tribble
Aleutian Islands
Little Sighs
Raspberry Swirl
Cold Fusion
Definition
Edge of the World
Point of No Return
Rim of Fire
Sharp Edge
Twin Cities
Wired


Planted these this summer:
Adventurous (I ordered one from two vendors by accident, and Brad sent one too, so I gues I really wanted this one! Hilarious! )
All Smiles
Soft Side
Cold Creek

My wish list contains:
Set My Soul On Fire
Inside Out
Top Shot

I think this is one of my favorites, but you have to enlarge it to see all the details.

I like Sutton irises and the hybridizers are really nice and helpful. I plan on adding a lot of their creations in the future. These are the one I currently grow.

Bahama Blues is on my wish list too. The beard alone makes it garden worthy.

They are slowly getting their stock built back up. I think we should support them by buying irises from them...... it's our duty. lol

Debra, you are on the Abby Chant list and both you and Arlyn on the Ahwahnee Princess list. I cant wait for irises to start blooming!

Enlightened is on my list too. (forgot to add it above.) Been on it for a while, as I haven't seen it for sale since the first year it was introduced.

Holy Cow -- I can't begin to compete in this group. I only have two Sutton Irises: Aleutian Islands, and Little Sighs (thanks to Tom). I did have Innocent Star -- but it was a casualty of last winter. Sad
