I went out and checked for any bee pods this morning (found two), but I saw one bloom on Mesmerizer. Now I'm wondering if this would be defined as a Re-bloomer since it bloomed about five or six weeks ago. Shrug!

Nice seedling! I'm still waiting on a few. Usually it's Ring Around Rosie, but she's not going to bloom this year.

Rebekah, here a thread from a while ago. Usually around 10 to 12 days you can see the swelling has started.

'Friendly Advice' is still blooming.

I'm still waiting for 'Baltimore' to start blooming.... any day now...

Both of these were new plants last summer.

Purple People Eater is gorgeous. Do you remember where you got it?

Lol sorry ugly pictures but exciting ones. So far my latest bloomers are Edith Wolford and Silver Screen Star.


Purple People eater is beautiful! Such rich color! And..... well I think I need Starship Enterprise, firstly for the name but also the color combination. I keep seeing images of it and the bloom is really growing on me. Bet it would make an interesting parent.

Csandt - I got Purple People Eater from Superstition.

As for my last bearded bloom, it changes every year. Most years it is often Gypsy Romance. This year it was Ginny Spoon's Chiffon Gown.

My very last bloom of the season though is always Harris' JI Blushing Snowmaiden.

For inquiring minds, my notes say that I got 'Purple People Eater' in 2016 from "Hummingbird Gardens" . I just did a Google search on that (plus "iris") and I came up with a website which not only looks nothing like what I remember, but which is totally unresponsive to my clicking any buttons. (Browser issue? Confused ) https://www.hummingbirdgardens... I suppose you could always send them an email: [email protected] .

(Fwiw I did a Google search on 'Purple People Eater' and C&T Patch supposedly has/had it - BUT their image looks absolutely nothing like my iris (nor the image and description on the AIS website http://wiki.irises.org/TbPthru... ), so I have to think that they may have the wrong iris.)

Truly, if I had any of it to share, I would, but as things stand now, I don't think that I do. (No, I don't take good care of my irises, and this one is still in a one gallon pot, and it produced two stalks for me this season. The pot is still a bit out of reach so I don't know if I will have increases for myself next year, or if it will bloom out. (Certainly whatever increases there may be in there, will be very small.) Later this summer I will get at the pot and get whatever is in there planted out.)

'Baltimore' finally bloomed today. 'Friendly Advice' is still blooming. Curiously enough, both of these are kids of 'Haunted Heart'.
