thank you to the generous hester's at wild iris rows in tennessee.

received my first iris box of the season consisting of :

5-6 'caribbean cruise' 2- larger and the rest were tiny increases with fans . burseen m 2010.


3 'kind hearted' . t.johnson m/l 2002

bonuses:

ernst m 1996 (2x)

and ?? either 'fire fettle' or 'fire feffle'. i couldn't find either in the db. any one know of this iris?
Thumb of 2018-06-29/shizen/ab2072 ah hah, we have a 'fine fettle'
in the db sans photo. deforest 1974 white w/lilac border

Thumb of 2018-06-29/shizen/7e6ba0 wow! look at the number of 'caribbean cruise'. hope this doesn't mean it's exteremely prolific, or the opposite end that it is difficult to grow? but i am thankful for darnell and greg's generosity!

Daphne - I am pretty sure it means Caribbean Cruise is prolific. Most Burseens are! Nice box from nice people.

Good luck, Timothy. I have those problems too. I have most of my shipping finished and the ones left will be dug at daybreak and prepped indoors. Big Grin

We're in the mid 90's with the heat index over 105 due to humidity. My poor gardens need to be worked in or I will never be ready for boxes.
