This winter the ground never really froze in that area, so I was able to plant -
Species Iris Katharine Hodgkin
Iris reticulata 'Spring Time'
Camassia - leichtlinii 'Caerulea'
Camassia - quamash
Camassia - quamash 'Blue Melody'
so far. I'm working on another list to order soon.
It'll be interesting to see which ones manage to survive conditions there firstly, and secondly, manage bloom before or after the run-off water is present.
I also have Iris sibirica Double Standards and Super Ego, Black Gamecock Louisiana Iris and an unspecified purple Japanese Iris in along the edge. (I almost forgot these were there.
) They should bloom for the first time here this year.
