You're a kind and generous man Arlyn -- and I love you for it. But please do not send me any extras this year -- I have a *logistics* issue I need to resolve before bringing in any more Irises -- even little guys.......... Shrug! Whistling

Mary Ann, I think the next to last one here is different from In Cahoots?

In Cahoots -- isn't this a pretty little thing........

Sorry -- the second to the last one is Love Spell, not In Cahoots. Sorry for the error -- I will go back and edit.

Thanks Deb. And Bonnie. And Rob. Smiling

I don't think it's Love Spell, I'm quite sure it's Alamo Joe. Smiling

OK -- thanks Tom. That one came from a professional grower, so I'm surprised that it's wrong. It's so frustrating when that happens. Thumbs down

On a happier note, got some TB's blooming now!!

First up is Daughter of Stars. Funny -- as long as I've owned this one, and photographed this one -- this is the first time that I've noticed the white rim on the standards. I just love this Iris:

This is Golden Panther -- first time blooming for me:
Thumb of 2016-04-21/Muddymitts/653f73 Thumb of 2016-04-21/Muddymitts/73ca52 I'm thinking this one should be moved to next to DOS -- wouldn't that be a gorgeous sight?

Dragon Flight -- one I've had for awhile and still love:

Wonderful collection Mary Ann! Did you do anything special to get Golden Panther to bloom? I have had mine in for several years with no bloom - it is about to get booted!

I didn't, Pam. I guess it just likes this spot better than where I planted it originally. Last summer I moved it to the newly-cleared section of the Fencebed garden. It gets full sun there -- and I'm thinking full sun is required for her. It did increase in the original location, so when I moved it I planted three rhizomes. All three have bloom stalks this year.

Wintry Sky is looking especially beautiful this year:

Another first-time bloomer for me -- Mandarin Morning, a Cheesehead contribution to my gardens. Thanks especially for this one Tom -- I love it!! Smiling

Thumb of 2016-04-21/Muddymitts/5abc1f Neal -- at least one of your rhizomes has a bloom stalk so I should be able to ID this for you.

Pam I have had the same issue with Golden Panther and also moved it last year. Maybe it needs a bit of a push to get going (food/feed wise).

And Mary Ann's picture is exceptionally clear and nice. I think her new camera is working well for her!

Neal, I think I can send you one this summer if you like for your Autumnal colors bed.
