Took a trip to our northern Michigan cottage and found a few iris in bloom. The dwarf bearded were just planted last summer. 3 out of 4 I planted survived.

Great blooms, Cindy. Those of us who will wait another year to see our irises bloom will be drooling over your irises. Big Grin

Thanks Bonnie. Unfortunately I probably won't have too many blooms this year because I moved some of them. I had a couple when I returned home.

I looked for QH for several years. It seems to like it in my garden. Smiling I am always happier after the confirmation bloom. That's the only way you know if you really have the right iris.
