|OK here goes the second time to post this. My cat decided it would be a good idea to get in my lap, the post disappeared |
Hook Shot and Announcement
Godsend older but still beautiful

I found more colorful pictures of Awesome Alex, it is awesome.
Conjuration, another oldie but goody.

|I only have four pictures, and I ended up not being so fond of the Space Agers so now I have none left. But here are my pictures:|
CONJURATION - My favorite
MIST ARISING - Picture taken at Keith Keppel's
STRAIGHT UP - Instead of horns at the tips of the beards, this one has big flounces

|I only have a few, and I don't have any pics good enough to share here. I just got Awesome Alex last year, and I have Petal Pushers, and Star Dock that are supposed to have these huge flounces, but only had small ones here. I also have Cross Examined, which is my favorite of this type. I'll have to try to get better pictures next year.|

|Hi, Are you aware of "Thornbird"? I think it was a Dykes Medalist one year. It has some unusual colors, which I fancy. Just a thought. Am thoroughly enjoying your many, beautiful photographs. Thank you.|

|Really cool pictures, Dot!!|

|I only have one Space Ager, and I just love it. It is Liquid Crystal Compass and a fellow forum member sent me a clump last year. In fact, until it bloomed this year and I asked, I had no clue what Space Age meant! I will post a photo after I get home from the long weekend, I posted a photo on one of the threads a few weeks ago. The colors in it are so subtle. ~ Jan|

|IB 'Liquid Crystal Compass' has long horns. I didn't get a picture as must first year plants were on the short side.|

|Best of the space agers is a no-brainer for me and my wife: 'Westpointer'|
The others we have include Byer's 'Thornbird':
Another very well liked cultivar: Tasco's 'Solar Fire'
And also cherished is another Monty Byers: Conjuration

|My favorite is - as always - Thornbird!! |
I also have Mesmerizer, Alabaster Unicorn and Wings of Peace. [Edit: Alien Mist too! ]
I have a few more on order this year, including Solar Fire.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!

|I vote for Mesmerizer, for its vigorous growth habit, big blooms, and length of bloom season.|

Bright white and it can (almost) hold its own against attention hog 'That's All Folks'
Flounces and spoons, oh my... For fancy, what more can you want?
My first year with this; the horn length seems to be variable, but at its longest, it's a wowzer.
I'm in love!
I picked this up at our club's plant sale at our recent show... silly me, I picked the weakest pot (leaving the best for the public)... it's blooming half-heartedly, but I expect a better show next year!
Daylily season is almost done, barring scattered rebloom. This was the LFO on a new diploid seedling; image from 8-17-17.

|I dislike horns on Iris, and am 'meh' on most other Space Agers, but, if I had an Iris that gave me blooms just like this one ALL the time...well... |
A Space Ager I do really like, and many thanks to Suzanne for sending it to me.
