hey everyone, Ive moved twice in the last 6 years so my iris collection has to be rebuilt save for the few i bought with me. luckily my mother also loves iris so we share and thankfully i could recover many of them. Unfortunately we dont use markers so ive lost the names of some and its gonna drive me insane. Here is what i have so far. and if you recognize any let me know. I will add to this post as they bloom they are super late this year.

Nice irises, Dana. Glad you got to keep some during your moves and glad you and your Mom can share. Good photos too. Thumbs up

If it is the older variety of periwinkle you will be removing it for a long time to come. I could tell you stories.... Sighing!

Looking forward to more of your photos. Thumbs up

thank goodness the previous owner put the thickest landscape fabric down and its practically sitting on top. its still going to be a chore because its heavy but i rolled back the corners and its not rooted to the ground. its in an area between the house and driveway so its been enclosed by concrete. theres about 15 x3 area of it Grumbling

That is good, Dana! While you are clearing 'IT' be careful not to drop a little piece of 'IT'. And every spring search for a little sprout and go into Hulk mode. Grumbling Somehow 'IT' came up in a bed that has a five foot paving border between the bed and 'IT'. Must have been a seed from a bloom. Now i am on sentry duty. 'IT' is living on a hillside that is very steep so I can't eradicate 'IT' there without doing damage to the property. Glare I guess there are things growing in every area that are a challenge to gardeners. Bermuda grass, old fashioned Nandinas, Sweet Gum tree seedlings and IT are on the top of my list. (I won't mention Sweet Autumn Clematis which I planted myself. *Blush* or a rambling rose that was a gift and has become my nemesis.) ~~~ i may invest in a blow torch. Glare

That second NoID below Ominous Stranger looks related to Durham Dream .
