Thank Heavens Sally, I thought my eyesight went completely. Rolling on the floor laughing My camera does okay in shade or on an overcast day, but I have problems with light yellows and blues. Dark blues are no problem.

It's a smallish flower and it opens all of a sudden and then closes in a day.

Kathy - Those are SWEET! What species of Iris are they?

Polly - All 3 Japanese Irises are sprouting new leaf blades! Whoo hoo! I thought I'd lost the Maroon Giant Iris, but I can see small new leaves peeking through the mud. :-) Do you think they might bloom this year for me?

In case Kathy doesn't stop back, those irises are Neomarica, or walking iris.

I don't know, Becky. They might. Or they might not. I'll keep my fingers crossed they do. When the leaves get up about 2 inches you can start fertilizing them. They are heavy feeders. Good job keeping them all alive!!!

Thanks for the name of the iris, Polly!

Why do they call Neomarica ... walking iris?

New baby plants form at the stem where the flowers were. The stem then grows longer, bends to the ground, and the baby plants root. So it appears they are walking away from the mother plant.

Oh! I have daylilies that do that! That makes sense! Thanks for the explanation. :-) They are definitely beautiful blooms!

How's the Louisiana irises doing? Mine were divided last Fall as you know and have just about filled each of their pots again. I haven't even fertilized them. Geez! Those babies do spread out in a hurry!

I would tell you, if they didn't have four feet of snow on them. I think they are nestled all nicely in their beds. they were such great divisions, they can't help but do well. I'll let you know as soon as I see them in late March/ early April.

And then there are the MG seeds just waiting for me.

You might want to fertilize those Louisianas with a fertilizer with bloom booster, so they don't put all their energy into growing big.

Got ya, Polly! I was thinking that, but wasn't sure. Would Bloom Booster by MiracleGro be sufficient or do you use something else?

Bloom Booster by MiracleGro would be excellent. I have a lot of faith in the MiracleGro products.
