Tall Bearded Iris 'One Desire' was one of my mom's favorite irises. I remembered she always would refer to it as "One Desire Pink" and I originally thought that was the name of it for a very long time. I'm going to try to get a start and grow it in memory of my mom.

Marilyn ~ I was just reading about this iris in "The World of Irises".

I did a search and found that C and T Iris Patch carries it but is currently out of stock. I am going to check with them next year, and if they have it, if I remember, I will let you know. Or you might want to check with them next year. It is a beautiful iris.

It is a beautiful iris. Bluebird Haven has it listed for sale if you want to get it there. http://www.bluebirdhavenirisga...

I don't know if I'm going to grow irises anymore, but thanks.

Marilyn ~ Did you ever make your memorial garden for your mom?

If you ever change your mind about irises, please do join us on the iris forum.

My mom passed away in 1999. She also loved irises as well as many other kinds of plants.

I am sorry for your loss.

Thanks Evelyn. No, I didn't get a memorial garden for my mom yet, but when I see pink (or any color of pinkish or rose-pink color) flowers blooming that I've planted or buy to plant in my garden, I think of my mom, as she loved pink too. This year, on March 16, my dad passed away 13 months and 2 days after my mom passed away on Feb. 14. When I'm in the garden and yard, I think of them both.

So sorry for your loss. Group hug

Marilyn ~ Now whenever I have any pink flowers in bloom but especially irises, I will think of you. What was your mother's first name? I am thinking of trying to improve on pink irises. I will be trying it for the first time this spring - summer.We'll see what happens. It may take a few years to get something good. It doesn't (usually) make anything worthwhile on the first try. That's why I wanted several nice pink irises to see and experiment with them.
