Thanks Leslie Smiling It isn't as spread out as I would like it to be in order to have established clumps several years down the road. I'll have to do some additional planning for that, or you guys will all be forced to take my increases when the time comes. I'm really curious to see the amount of blooms I get. As much as I really want to see blooms from my newer additions, I'm actually more focused on what blooms for the second year. It is a greater measure of success for me and also tells me what needs to be done differently in regards to water, fertilizer, amount of sun, soil composition, etc.

Folies Burgere gets on my list! I got Painted Word last summer, but it's struggling, The main fan is not doing well, but the increases are OK, guess it will be a while before I see it. Sighing!

Go For Broke, oh my. I love the beard and how it plays into the colors around the throat.

Brad is always bad for the wallet. My garden has many examples of how his pictures forced me to go out and buy.....yes, forced me. I was unable to ignore the siren song.... Hilarious! Hilarious!

I agree Folies Burgere is like a more dramatic version of some of the first Iris to get me addicted.

I may be in trouble with Sutton's this year. They've already released a bunch of 2017 intro pics and I love the majority of them. I can feel bankruptcy coming on!!
