Kinda nice they bloomed in the ground a little later than the bog. Gives you a little more time with them. Pretty little stepping stone thingee there!

Charleen - Those are beautiful! I am soooo jealous! Mine show no indication of producing buds, so I think it may be a bust this year for blooms for me. The plants have spread somewhat, so they are still healthy and growing, but it may be too warm of winters here to set any blooms this far south. I'll grow them for another year and see what happens. Who knows, with this global warming, I might get a really cold winter in 2012! Whistling

I will say that I just had some more poppies blooming, which totally floored me. They usually only bloom in early Spring here when the temps are still cool. So ... anything is possible, I suppose!

I know you did grat Becky. Wish I could help. I think my season of blooms are over for the beautiful JP. I really enjoyed watching them from planting last fall to the very rewarding blooms this spring. I am over whelmed at the beauty. I thank you very much Polly for lettig me do the testing for you.
Hugs and more hugs.....

Polly - That was a good test run for your business to see if they would or wouldn't bloom in central/south Florida. I'll keep growing them. My Louisiana Irises didn't bloom much this year either. We had a really cold winter 2 years ago and they bloomed like crazy for me. I also have a couple Bearded Irises which are a nice size, but they haven't bloomed either. I'll keep growing them to see if they don't surprise me next year. I can hope, right?

Absolutely.

My Louisianas haven't bloomed yet, but they have increased greatly.

Group hug I moved my Iris to a larger container. We have been so dry, the ones I had in the ground are now in the old iris container. They are looking better already.

Thank you, Charleen. I'm so glad to see that Japanese can grow successfully in a bog in Georgia. It's been two years now, so we know they aren't just getting the bloom from being here. So, our project was successful. I know it's not a true scientific experiment, but I also feel in my heart that Japanese can really bloom in the southern states. And they're blooming well.

Thank you for doing this for me!
