Thank you Paul. Half the fun of Irises is taking photos and sharing! Green Grin!

Tom -- yes I do like the fragrance. As far as High Master is concerned -- I'm pretty sure I'll be thinning this year -- would you like a rhizome?

Mary Ann, Your purple NoIDs have leaves, but no blooms anywhere yet up here.
Don't make fear based decisions.

Wonder what they're waiting for, Linnea.......... Confused

Janie -- I'll put your name on the list as well. My clump of High Master had seven full-size, fully opened blooms tonight -- it was just gorgeous!!!

Leslie -- should I put you down for High Master if I have enough?

I'm jealous.. My Daughter of Stars has no spikes, and neither does Clarence.. I may move Clarence this year and see if it does any better in another spot..

Your Honey Glazed has made a very nice clump.. Nice to see..
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Mary Ann, Is your Moonlit Water really that rosy colored? Mine is way more blue/violet, or is it a camera thing?

The color on the right is more accurate.
