Polly -- if you're talkin' to me, you gotta use my whole name -- otherwise I think you're talking to someone named Mary. My name is Mary Ann -- like it was one word. Thanks.

So are you saying that Blue Reflection is in there? I'll go and take another look.

It's in there!!! YAY!!!! Hurray! Thanks Polly. Musta been some kind of glitch, first time around.

Donna -- that's just an ordinary yew behind those Irises. I wasn't even thinking about background when I snapped the pictures -- but was so pleased -- the yew was all dressed up in it's Spring finery, lovely soft green needles. It did make the perfect backdrop for those beautiful blossoms. Thumbs up

Mary, what a wonderful story and a wonderful horse!

Share share!!

I love Shreiner Iris and have a few. My neighbor just put in at least 50, two years ago and I so enjoy them!

Blue Reflection is well named. It's beautiful even before I enlarge the picture. It's a nice delicate blue.

Impressionist is a very pretty color match and I too love the stripe. The curly standards are very nice!

I have two no-ID's that my wonderful friend gave me. I just call them:

Black Cherry

Thanks Sue, I rescued an iris two years ago from a spot across the road from a farmhouse. The family's name is Lord so I called it Lord's Purple. I'm pretty sure it's Black Cherry! I would love to know the real name. I'm sure they are fairly old iris. My friend never met a plant she couldn't find room for, and she always shared. She never knew the name of anything.

Oh how pretty Sally -- what's prettier than a big, healthy clump of Iris? And yours has such a nice, rich color!

I'm gonna try to upload a picture of my current favorite Iris -- Chasing Rainbows. I'm learning my way around a flash drive, and it's giving me fits!! Grumbling

OK -- that worked. Now I'll upload a picture of the clump if I can.

That worked too! I'm getting better at this!

That one makes a beautiful clump!

Pretty easy to upload once you figure it out, isn't it, and you can do multiple pictures in one post. Just don't put more than three across. Put any number you want down.

Sally, that one you call 'Dusky Rose', it looked familiar to me from when I was looking through historics. I am pretty sure it's Easter Bonnet, (Maxwell-Norton, 1943).
What do you think?

Sue, that is so close that I think I'll change the name. Since the other pictures had varations, my climate might cause a few color changes too. Mine is pretty bland in color and this picture is pretty true color. I can tell by the long falls that it's an older iris.

Thanks much!

I love the name Easter Bonnet!

Another lovely clump shot. You can put clump shots in the database too, you know. Smiling

Personally, often I buy an iris based on a clump shot I've seen.

Betty, Sue, anyone, can you tell me what this TBI is? This is an old photo, taken in 1984; but the iris came from the house that my Mom bough in 1977. I wish that I would have thought about taking one when we moved, but if someone can give it a name, maybe I can find another one.
