I'd have to call Claudia Barton Blair a luminata plicata. That's a mouthful.

Leslie, I usually separate my Japanese every two years. Since Chad Harris says the rhizomes grow up I was thinking of adding more potting soil to my two year pots. I have two pots of each so it may be time for an experiment.

I grow my Japanese iris in a lined shallow box filled with water. I take them out for the winter. I leave my I laevigata albopurpurea 'Cholchesterensis' (another mouthful) in the water all year.

Jo Ann - I'm On Fire is a pretty one!

Carl - Thanks for the info. I think Chad said he separates the potted iris every year, but I wonder if leaving them for two wouldn't work better. Some take two years to bloom.
Laevigata require lots of water right? I want to grow those in pots too. Chad has one I really want to get, Lakeside Ghost.

This one had really gone by. It was the best looking bloom of about three left from a clump that was about 4ft wide.

Bearded iris are germanica for the most part.
