Fragrant is always good!

It smells like grape soda. I can spend all day smelling these. The neighbors already think I'm odd, so... Hilarious!

I just love the smell of iris. It was really warm this weekend, so when I was working near different clumps of iris the scent would drift on the air. One of the best things in nature!

Never thought of it that way, but yes it does. If I could bottle the scent I would wear it every day.

This little guy opened today. I thought it was going to be Blackbeard but obviously not. Anyone have a clue? It isn't in my list and is about 8" tall.

No idea on that little one Celia.
Recent discussion on HIPS forum confirmed that Crimson King as the genuine article; note that the falls have a velvety look, one of the distinguishing marks. That clump was thinned but now is back to around 40 stems.
You are on your way with a nice iris garden, lots of variety!

And I must share this clump of I. germanica. It was my 1st iris and, like the Energizer Bunny, just keeps going...

I really would! Unfortunately, my work schedule has me working most Saturdays. I wish they had them on weekdays. Sad
