|WOW! Joe Ghio sent me these two pictures yesterday, and he just now emailed me his approval to post them. The first is a 2012 Introduction, and also he referred me to the AIS Region 14 Fall Bulletin, which shows a few more!|
SUPERHERO (Ghio 2012)
POLITE APPLAUSE (Ghio 2011) - Luckily I have this one, as I really really love it!
And here is the link for the Region 14 Bulletin -- pictures of some of his absolutely gorgeous introductions and seedlings here!
And now I can hardly wait to receive his 2012 catalog in late January to early-mid February! If anyone is interested in receiving his catalog, you should email him to order a copy, and I believe there is a small charge (around $3).

|Polly, I am with you on that one! Wish we knew the parents. It has several features that I would like to see in crosses I want to do.|

|Oh, I love the photo of Seedling 07-31N2 in the bulletin. Oddly, that's the second time today that Corralitos has come up on the Web for me. I was looking at the Roses of Yesterday and Today site earlier. It must be a gardening paradise.|

|It sure is -- and Maryott's Daylily Garden is right there by Joe Ghio's growing field too! Sue, her mom and I were all there in August. And I believe that's the seedling I really love too -- actually I love all of them!|
Edit: Actually, upon rechecking, my favorite seedling is the other one, the yellow based iris -- really love that one!

|While I lived in Fairbanks, Alaska, I met a woman next door to a customer of mine who was growing chocolate irises. She told me got them from a friend in Juneau, AK where they proliferate. I was never able to get any to try but I am going to plant them here in Easter Washington this next fall. They are absolutely gorgeous.|
