I'm sorry they were lost to you Bonnie. Do you think they are any less vigorous?
I'm hoping I purchased Doger blue and possibly Absolute Treasure, thought I haven't seen them yet. I've written down all my Irises except the ones from my first order. I hope there is a tb blue Iris out there for you. I know I saw one in my neighborhood before I moved three years ago. I really regret not knocking on their door to find out what it was.
Because that Iris was blue. A light blue without lavender! Oh well they may not have known. I think the flower beds have been replanted with something else. I don't know maybe it's the soil Ph.
