I was going to post this on the Mindless Chatter thread but I thought it may be a good topic for another thread. Looking at the recent photos added to our irises database has caused me to add quite a few to my own wish list. So today I thank Richard (lilpod13) for posting this picture as it was added to my wish list because of your photo.

Another added benefit is in the spring so many irises are added to the database that some don't get seen or have the chance of getting as many thumbs up.

Keith Keppel has listed some Blyth irises for sale on his website. I love Keith's introductions this year - I want them all, but will just get one - Ocean Liner.

Lovey dubby Ocean Liner, but it will have to wait until next year.

I ordered Menhune this year. My only concern is planting it where the sun will not fry it. My trees do not have leaves when the MDB's are blooming and the darker ones blooms do not last a day.

Good to know that Bonnie, when I get it I should plant it a afternoon shade area.

From the database, Sherry and Liz shows they bought it from Aitkin's in 2016. I need to go look to see if they still have it listed.

It is for sale at Aitken's this year. I actually have mine planted in full afternoon sun and it seems happy. I won't get a bloom this year, because it got a touch of rot and I had to prematurely divide it. That database picture is drool-worthy for sure.

Menehune, and several other really great Marky Smith iris are all carried by Aitken's. I so want Benedictine, but I am having problems with many of her iris surviving here (besides Delirium that is a great grower). Her dwarfs don't like humid heat very much it appears. Sad
