It's a really good grower here too.

I wonder why I have two identical posts of Two Thumbs Up? I only posted it once? Weird!

Same bloom same camera yet the first one looks like the right color, and the last one looks too blue.

It's an interesting color, but poorly shaped.

Just trying to catch up on some of these threads... Really nice photographs Tom.. It's nice to see the beginning of the season again.. I still have some spikes coming up, but for the most part, I'm in clean up mode now.. Lots of deadheading.
The surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that it has never tried to contact us.

We had a light frost, temp right on 32, and a few of my buds opened and the bloom is sagging so I'll get later blossoms on them, but some seem OK.

Here's Dot Com, all of these opened at once.

Here's one I lost the marker on, and I don't have it on my map sooo I think it came from Arkansas too, but not sure. It's a cutie too. Any guesses?

Well, by process of elimination I realized it's Raspberry Jam. I have it in two places and the other one is marked, and looking the same.

Hybridizers have been trying for turquoise. The Spoons of Winterberry are getting them in SDBs.

Teresa, I love turquoise irises. I bought several of the little guys in that color two years ago and NONE of them will bloom once for me. I just stomp up and down the yard by the beds lamenting their lack of enthusiasm but to no avail. I still am waiting to see my first turquoise SDB bloom. whine..........
