Robin, at Iris-Sisters, is having an end of Season surplus sale. There's some really nice irises marked down to just $5 each. The sale ends on Oct. 17th, so you need to get your orders in soon.

You are evil Rob. But I did buy a few because I would rather get them for $5.00 now than $15.00 next year. And if they are overstock they must be good growers for her. I notice that Enter The Dragon was only $5.00 and that one grows very well for me. Bloomed like crazy too.


What I bought:



I am a sucker for yellow & white iris

because my current one is sort of iffy



how could I not, so cute

Drooling

More things to go in pots. I am truly crazy.

Is it too late to plant iris? I thought ideally, they should be in the ground by September for optimal results.

It's too late in my zone, but some of the warmer areas can plant them much later then I can.

Except for the deadly wildfires, California is having mild weather. These will probably go in pots.

I agree I'm all ears!

(If it turns out he never ordered any for himself but was just trying to tempt the rest of us, I assume there will be dire consequences?? Big Grin )
