As I was looking through my garden photos looking for a particular photo I came across this photo I took a few years ago of one of my obviously vigorous seedlings. I thought it might give all the siberian iris lovers a good fix for the day.
Have a good one,
Jim in Saskatchewan

Thank you all very much for the warm welcome.
I also came across this photo of one of my favourite species Iris, lactea that seems to really like it in my quasi? rock garden.

Thanks to all again. Niki, I am located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada. I do a few species of Irises including some spurias and and hybrids - bearded and spurias. The spuria hybrid, Protege (sp?) I believe is my favourite since Daphne said she likes blues. It has a huge flower.
First photo show the back garden in which the Iris lactea is planted - sort of on the upper right,
Second photo is Protege

Thanks.
Here is a shot of the front side yard from a couple of years ago - looks a bit different now as you know gardens are always changing. And yes, I am truly a mad gardener - I love all aspects of it - planting, growing, hybridizing, you name it.

Jim, what a beautiful, and tidy, garden you grow. Lovely photos. The one that shows the grassy lawn area makes me want to pull up a chair and watch the day go by.

Thanks to all for the comments.
Lilli, I am sure you can grow this Iris. Now, I wish I had collected some seed for you. If you can't find any I can collect some this coming season.
Jim
