I grow Patina too, but it is paler than yours. Maybe mine is in too much shade? Is yours in full sun?

Welcome Rik.
Your temperature is close to many areas in N.A. [10-86 in F]. Gardens look good. We are jealous of what is available in EU!

36! Blinking Must have been quite a clump!

Do you keep your iris seed pots outside during winter?
Of course I talk to myself; sometimes I need expert advice!
