I know that I have yet to post any pictures as I have had many distractions. (translation-the bathroom improvement project got expanded). I did get a new bloom yesterday. And has been the rule for me in July/August, the iris bloom is yellow. What is different is that it is NOT "Again & Again".

I got two boxes yesterday and I have potted everything. I now have 93 pots from all five of the boxes I have received so far this season (I only planted 6 rhizomes directly in the ground!).

It is "Grapetizer". Here are some more pictures to drool over (that would be a "Rob alert" for the less informed)

"Engage Bib" says the Officer of the deck!

Tom,

A crane?

Oh yes I did. The box was a 12 x 12 x 12 box! It had layer upon layer of wonderfulness. I am strongly considering another order before the deadline; am I fool or what?

I had trouble, and I am serious about this; fitting some of them into my 1 Gal Trade pots. Not only were the rhizomes huge but some of the roots were massive.
