Welcome! Jen, hope you enjoy ATP. Lots of information has been shared here and I've learned so much from all the Iris addicts on ATP. I also agree with your comment on Sisters Iris. She has wonderful Iris and the bonus Iris she gives with each order is unbelievable!

Usually you get as many bonuses as you order irises from the Sisters. I have Champagne and Strawberries, and it's a great grower and bloomer.

Thanks Phillip! One of the ladies I met at our local iris society told me about it. I was trading off Facebook and she asked if I had ever used this site. So I look forward to using it.

I agree with the bonus iris, I got as many bonus iris as I ordered and the bonus Iris were fantastic! I actually got the champagne and strawberries as a bonus when I ordered my 2 love to party I had to have! They also came so quickly and in absolutely perfect shape!

Needless to say I placed another order from her and it's due to be delivered on wends! I can't wait! She also has a fantastic Blyth collection, which happens to be my favorite!

Welcome! Jen! I just posted my Blyth heavy goodies from the Iris Sisters on the Did You Get A Box thread.

Lynn - (to get back to the original question!!). I have Champagne and Strawberries and will probably have some ready to trade next year. Just got another rhizome of it as a bonus so need to see if it takes off!

Mary Anne it is connection! It's my favorite all time bloomer. It's stunning. It even gets richer color with a little Epsom salt.
