I got an email from Schreiner's saying they are having a sale. Go figure, anyway you guys have been a bad influence on me and now I am scanning iris websites lol.

I like the looks of Fangtastic plus the name is kinda funny. Do you like this one? Has it done well or not? Also Celestial Explosion and Double CLick. Will it rebloom here in zone 6?

Thanks

I just got it today, so I can't help you at this time.
Sorry.

Teresa -- I couldn't find a Fangtastic on their website. Did you mean Fangnificent?

If it's Fangnificent, at least 3 of us ordered it this year. Next year, we may have an answer or two. Or three. Smiling

Or four! Couldn't resist the combination of name, color and price - and it has horns!

Well, I see I am not the only one that likes it apparently! Mary Ann, I guess my typing got ahead of my thinking.

It was the only one in their sale that really jumped out at me... but I'm done for the year. Rolling on the floor laughing

Well -- it jumped right into my *must have* category. And, thankfully, Barb made it possible for me (and Celia) to get it!!! Hurray!

I am currently pretending that sale isn't happening even though they keep sending me emails with more on sale. Love Fang but can't tell you how it does. Good hybridizer though so should do well.
