January is the perfect time to cuddle up to a warm catalog or computer and contemplate Spring. There are a few iris I got from some of you and some that were ordered from the internet that I am very much looking forward to seeing. What one or 50 are you looking forward to seeing that hasn't bloomed for you yet?

Cant' wait to see them all but these are the most anticipated!

Wow, this could take me all day to respond to, so I'll just put one from each hybridizer for now and see how far I get! Great idea for a thread!

Think I'm going to love the one.

I think the Ghio iris I'm most looking forward to seeing is probably What a Beauty

Paul Black's Mordor is one I'm eager to see. It's a little guy.


Such a cool one, love the beards.

This is one I snagged from Iris Sisters Auction and no one bid on. 10 for $10 monster rhizomes with 7-12 increases each.

Oh my, that's a big list for me! I've added quite a few the last 2 years, but I'll focus on those that are waiting till year 2 to give me first blooms. The pink bed should be colorful this spring!

Looks like a bright one Celia- right up my alley! Thumbs up

I added several blues in 2014 that I'm looking forward to this spring.
