Finally, a picture of Cat's Eye:
I love these two little guys --they single handedly have made a dwarf Iris-lover out of me!

This is a bad picture of Honey Glazed (sorry) -- the clump shot is better:

Wow - you are way ahead of me! Must be further south. I have no TBs but do have Cat's Eye, Ocean Pearl, Iris germanica, Wish Upon A Star (a cutie!), Arctic Fancy and an old purple I think is Crimson King.
Love Rio Rojo! If you ever get around to dividing - just saying.....
I hope to be able to show some photos of blooming in Kentucky soon.

Janie -- I'll put your name on the list for Rio Rojo, but it'll probably be next year before I thin it. I did so last year, and they'll need some time to develop increases. Smiling

Thank you Ashton. Smiling I don't think it's my best picture of RR -- but since you brought it up, I think I will hold off on adding pics to the database until Iris Week!!

It's ironic -- while some of my Irises are just giving up and rotting in the face of unending rain and chilly weather, others are very busy putting on a show.

Here is Clarence -- first bloom of the season:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/bf3a0e Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/f6195a
Does anyone besides me think Clarence is an odd Iris? The color is intriguing, but it always seems to have a wonky form. I didn't buy it on purpose -- bought a packaged Iris at Lowes, many years ago -- it was supposed to be Mother Earth...........

And here is a better clump shot of Honey Glazed:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/b04ccb

The first bloom of the season for Amain:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/2c4a33 Such a cheerful and vigorous Iris

An interesting bud-shot on Inside Job:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/cfc430

Tom -- I took a bunch of pictures of your seedling last evening. It was a gorgeous color in the twilight. I couldn't quite capture it -- I couldn't seem to turn off the flash on the dang camera. But it sure was beautiful:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/451199 Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/ef7c53
The clump shot shows the color better -- but I wanted an up-close picture of it, and couldn't get it done.

High Master -- getting ready for a reely big shew:
Thumb of 2015-04-25/Muddymitts/97c816

Another shot of Daughter of Stars -- this Iris enchants me:


That's all for yesterday. Smiling

Clarence always had a wonky form for me. I was always surprised that it made so many 'best iris' lists because of the form. Color is outstanding, though. I assumed it was only wonky for me Smiling , so it's interesting to read your comment.

Nice pictures Mary Ann. I never can get the color right on my purple either. Glad it's doing well in all that rain. It doesn't seem to be bothered by wet conditions at all. Do you like it's fragrance? I used to have High Master, but lost it. Guess I should get it again.
