Thought it might be, Neal. Would you like me to put you on the future share list?

Like Eric, I'm looking forward to seeing Louisa's Song bloom. It's been around a while and from
all reports, is very reliable. In fact, among the newly planted irises (over a hundred) this season,
Louisa's Song has vigorously and noticeably taken off!
I'm also looking forward to Eye for Style and many others. Smiling It will carry me through the winter!

I planted Louisa's Song last year. Still waiting! It grew very well, but did not bloom. I find that to be the pattern with a lot of Blyth Iris here in the east. Once established they do well - it just takes a long time. Even one extra year is a long time when waiting on a new Blyth iris to bloom!

I can't wait to see everyone's pictures next spring!

So many I'm looking forward to.. For starters.....

I waited a couple years for the price of 'Ginny Mitchell' to come down. I have a friend by that name, who is also a singer/songwriter.. this was named for Kerr's SIL, who is an avid horsewoman in Montana..


'Bronze Heart'


'Adoree'


'Abiding Love'


'Color Strokes'


'Spiral Galaxy' wows me every time I see it.

A friend of mine sent me Color Strokes this spring. Can't wait to see it bloom. But then, I have at least 100 I can't wait to see! Hilarious!

Thanks, however that takes me to my photo files on my computer. I want to add a pic from the ATP database. I have clicked on the pic, come to this thread, clicked paste, but nothing happens. I know I have done this before!
