I am on complete iris overload! I just spent a couple hours going through this thread...OMG Brad!!! Once again you have demonstrated why you hold the title of the Grand PooBah of Enabling!

After looking at so many gorgeous flowers they begin to run together...except for this one. I think it will haunt me in my dreams!!! I think it should be your first introduction! I'm sure one of the pros out there would love to help you get it to market! I would be happy to be a test grower here in 9b for you!!!

Sherry, maybe it's time for a "Bloom Season 2016" post. I have Blackwatch blooming and Trick or Treat has two stalks that should open any day. The real performer is Hell's Fire that has seven stalks getting ready to bloom.

It will be a long while before there is anything blooming in Kentucky. We have snow, rain and sleet. I envy you who have stalks already.

Nikki. Thanks !! I don't think there is ever a bad time to visit them there is so many different plants to see in there gardens should always be something new coming on but if you wait till TB's are blooming the Peonies are at the same time and they have a wonderful selection of those also.

Bonnie.. I am really looking forward to it as well as of a week ago when I could get in it the plants looked good still lot's of green and that's a good sign but still finding some plants laying in the rows from the deer. Hopefully in April we will be living there and I can fight back Angry The field is going to grow quickly I stopped by the greenhouse today to water seedlings and found a couple hundred up already Green Grin! it's fun to see the next group starting to stick out of the dirt in the pots.

Sherry.. Thanks Smiling you would enjoy a trip to Oregon in May it is after your bloom season and there are many awesome gardens in the Salem area. Santa Cruz Big Grin is special also the scenery driving there along the Highway with all the conifers and redwoods is awesome, the ocean is close by and I'm guessing within a few miles from you is some of the best Iris available anywhere and a equally impressive Rose collection Big Grin

Mary Ann.. Rolling on the floor laughing I am the same way but there much easier to take care of in mass quantities when there in a field setting because you can get a tractor and other equipment in there to help with the work load. The path's are really neat I'm not sure how Thomas keeps up with the maintenance of it all there is a incredible amount of work that goes into maintaining that place Smiling

Tom.. I don't have any Hosta's either no shade gardens here but I sure enjoyed the ones at Mid American.. I didn't realize how many different colors and patterns they come in and they look really good tucked under all the different trees there.

Marilyn.. Thank You Smiling and glad your back. That one is a favorite, and I thought I had something special when it 1st bloomed.. can't wait to see the rest of the (Just Witchery) kids bloom this year hopefully there are more like it in whites and pinks Smiling

Carl.. Wow blooming in February that's awesome and I agree start the bloom time 2016 thread when they start coming on.

Lucy..We are months away as well more snow tomorrow but the weekend will be nice Highs in the 50's and I know were on the downward slide.

You picture of Vanity Girl makes me happy I chose it as a bonus. The falls have slight hint of blue too. Yay!
