My stalks are a little weird from the winter I think. Not as many blooms on a lot of them and many are really short. Cimarron Trail was shorter than some of my SDBs. Hopefully next year will be better, but I'm still really in love with all of them. I'm happy that I made room to spread them out a little more, which will be part of my new planting extravaganza at the end of the summer.

Yea, we got it. Thing is.....maybe if we ignore your "comments" they might diminish or go away (doubt it) Smiling

Just the facts;

Now that was uncalled for and just plain rude. Thumbs down

If you're having a bad day, go take a nap.

As I mentioned before - I got around to ordering those ones I had just never quite ordered. When this one bloomed I was so happy I got it. Love it!

Class Ring:
Lovey dubby




I ordered this one a few years ago and it has finally bloomed. The iris is smaller than it's listed height. Almost like a miniature version. Ironically I also got Belvi Queen, listed as 40", from the same vendor and it bloomed like a miniature version too.

It is a cute in it's little form though - Amarillo Rojo

There are so many great irises in here! Drooling Lovey dubby I'm putting together my first-ever order from an iris vendor and you guys are making it SO HARD to keep it to a reasonably-sized list! Rolling my eyes. Hilarious! ...I keep going back and making edits (read: additions) to my list.

I hate to call it a "sickness", but an "addiction" is not too far off the mark. It usually passes after a few years. Usually.
