The blooms are slowy showing up. Wasnt able to make it to the shade garden today, but my mom took a pic this evening of a noid i haven't seen in bloom before. I'll attempt a better shot tomorrow in daylight.

One I did catch was Ozark Rebounder at the new location. Very happy bloom and the sunset really illuminated it. Excuse the truck. 14 hour workday, its the last thing I was worried about.

Gimme it and I'll grow it!

It is a bad year for Muggles......

My SDB Muggles is blooming all squished up by foliage, the spaths aren't letting go of the falls (many dwarfs having this problem), and squashed with other blooms. I will definitely post a prettier picture of this really lovely iris if I can catch one.

Meanwhile Pokemon continues to grow and grow and bloom and bloom. I like this picture because the blooms remind me of those silly "spinner" toys that are popular (actually I am surprised that there aren't real Pokemon spinner toys....)

Okay, I am obsessed with this itsy bitsy teeny weeny MDB. I had two tiny stalks come up with blooms away from the rest of the fans. The bloom and stalk were perhaps 5 inches tall tops.

I present you with Beetlejuice!

I think this picture best represents how very small the iris was as the bloom hides the entire rest of the plant.
(Open me!)

And a beard shot! All I can say is thank the stars I planted this in a raised dwarf bed because I would never have been able to get this close to the ground and get back up gracefully! Hilarious! Hilarious!

The rest of it's fans are in the background.

SDB Snow Peas and the color in the pics is true. Love it.

Gabe: I think that Red truck actually shows off your Ozark Rebounder. it's really nice.

Leslie: Ohhh Awww. Beetle juice is amazing. I thought I had it but I don't. I have to get that one ordered. And your Snow Peas color is so pretty.
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

Thank You! for posting that picture, Gabe! I'm a bit surprised to find I think that colour combination actually works. Blinking I'll now have to experiment with mixing 'red' and dark purple irises! Hurray!
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

I think red and purple are very rich looking together. Put a white or yellow self in and surround it with deep purples and deep reds. That will be a grand focal point.

Thanks Leslie, Gabe, Bonnie, et. al. for all the amazing pics full of color and wondrous fantasies 'come to life'! I feel like I need a cigarette after spending time canvassing these beauties and I don't smoke! Rolling on the floor laughing

Actually, forget the smoke, what I need is another 100 acres added to my property so I could start acquiring many of these plants!
