Betty...what a nice treat to wake up to.....fabulous pictures of such a wide variety of stunning colors and gorgeously formed iris. Thanks so much for sharing with us. You are probably good advertising for Ghio iris. He ought to name one after you.

I actually forgot a couple last night:

CENTER ICE
Thumb of 2012-03-18/Betja/f5be23

SPLURGE - I almost killed this one because it wasn't getting any water and I didn't realize it until I saw this poor little flower. So I immediately dug up the rhizome and potted it up (but it's in pretty bad shape) and I've ordered another this year -- and this time I'll put it in a prime spot because this one looks very interesting!

I have found some great bargains in newer irises by other hybridizers in Joe's catalog. For instance, I'll use the Schreiner's 2010 introduction CRIMSON CLOUD as an example. Here it is in the Schreiner's online catalog, listed at $24.00.

http://www.schreinersgardens.com/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=PR...

Then I checked the price in the Superstition catalog, and it is $17.00. But Joe Ghio has it in his Bargain Section for $9.00. So when I find new iris introductions I really like, but just not enough to pay the new introduction price, I wait a year or two and start tracking them in the various catalogs to find the best price. And more often than not, I find that Joe has the best price -- especially if it's already in his Bargain Section.

I just checked, and there are larger pictures of a few of his new introductions in the March 2012 MBIS Newsletter:

It's nice to see a closeup of his new BEAUTY WITHIN -- wish now I'd ordered it!

Oh man, my list just keeps growing! Are you sure you two aren't secret agents working for the iris society to stimulate the iris economy, lol. Just awesome pictures. The Ghio irises that I had next to the house have all done well this mild winter. I only have room for about a doz if I move some out. That super hero has my eye. I guess I have to go out of retirement so I can afford more. And Betty, my Photogenic that only had the original rhizome has popped out 3 new increases in the last few days since it's been in the high 70's here. I'm so excited. Thanks to you both, for sharing your pictures.

Oh my gosh!! Thanks to all that posted these beautiful pictures! I've sent in my order but now I wonder if they will be successful in Iowa winters. Anyone have a problem with them overwintering in colder climates?

What zone are you? I am 5a or 5b. They have a reputation for being a little finicky but several of my friends and myself grow them successfully and I am adding more Ghio iris this year..

I don't, but we get a ton of snow cover. I'm 6a, supposedly. That doesn't seem to mean we still don't have temps into the -20s. Rarely, though.

It's funny, irises in colors I never really liked before just jumped off the screen at me. It might have something to do with the exceptional photography, or maybe these irises are just so beautifully put together they changed my taste. I just love Cast of Characters, but New Day Dawning looks so lovely in the clump shot! I never would have guessed that it would jump out at me like that.
Thank you.
Renee
