We'll be waiting, Celia!

In the meantime, loved Barbara's second *S* Iris -- Supreme Sultan! -- posted last night.

And congratulations to Tom whose Private Dan/Don thread and the Companion Thread were second and third in competition. I think the Iris forum had as many posts in these three threads as all the other forums combined! I gotta go and see if I'm right about that!

Oh -- and since I hurried to get Part 4 going, I only posted one picture of Trade Secret. I'd like to post a clump shot too!

This Iris is really a delicate beauty!!

Tracy's Sunshine. Got it for the name to go in the Memorial bed for my niece Crystal and step-nephew Tracy. From the vendor photograph, didn't think I would like it all that much...then it bloomed. Lovey dubby

Wow...Trade Secret is a real beauty and I love those horns on TLB. Gotta love that beard on Talisman.
Planted this one last summer...hoping to see it bloom this year.

I love it Debra, seems I'm drawn to any with a combo of white, yellow, and purple- they seem to shine in the garden.

I only have a couple of new Ts, and Tropical Passion is the one I'm most excited to see bloom.

I really like Trade Secret, Mary Ann. For my 'T' iris I will have to go with one that is a reliable bloomer and re-bloomer, and is also just a beautiful little iris.

MDB Trimmed Velvet


Someone handed me a little rhizome of this iris at a plant exchange in April several years ago. I planted it and it bloomed that fall and has never missed a bloom time since. The only complaint possible is that it is not a fast increaser. However, maybe that is just in my area.
I love my garden.... and Jesus, and coffee, and naps.......

and the little rim around the falls matching the standards is the 'trimmed' part.
