I guess it's a sign of true obsession , but I have started planning NEXT years orders ! I still have several boxes to arrive, and, assuming they are like most of the orders already received.....there will be at least one, or two iris that were "deleted" for one reason, or another. I already have about a dozen on next year's list, that I *thought* I had ....only to find that they couldn't be delivered. Then there are the ones I "couldn't find" this year....so every catalog will be scanned to try to locate those, and......I definitely will add a few more 'Indians', if I see them, and there are a few rebloomers that I want.
Still a few DM winners that I'm missing, and some Hedgecock, Tasco, and Burton cultivars I want to add, as well.
I ordered quite a few more, this year, than I had planned on, but, I still have some bed space left, and, even though I *culled* some iris that "just weren't me" from the beds, this year.....there are still a few that will be saying ,'Bye Bye", and , there are some that were planted THIS year (bonus iris, extras, etc.) that will, unless they REALLY surprise me, will be 'short term" in my beds, as well !
