From lovelyiris carried over here:


I walked the iris beds this afternoon and a couple of mine already have buds and bloom stalks coming up. Not many right now but a few. Thumb of 2011-03-19/lovelyiris/e28a71 Iris and Phlox.
Thumb of 2011-03-19/lovelyiris/68404a La. Irises ? They love water.Thumb of 2011-03-19/lovelyiris/cb777d
Thumb of 2011-03-19/lovelyiris/0b4ffd
I do not know the name of any of these. Shoot for that matter I don't even know what kind they are all I know is they love water. These are old photos and I can't wait to see them blooming again.

Marian,

The irises in the three bottom pictures are definitely LA, and definitely beautiful!!!!!!

Aren't they!

Have you tried any LAs, Kath? Mine are coming back well. My spurias and LAs are both up a little, and seem to have multiplied.

I had a LA black gamecock about 25 years ago which died in my first garden so I assumed this wasn't a good place for them. About 2 years ago I put in 3 different LAs on the edge of this garden. I hope they continue to thrive! Here's Black Gamecock last year. I ordered some from Mama's co-op too.

Marian, those last pics you posted made me gasp! Too beautiful for words! And those Louisianas are amazing- the red ones are the truest red Irises I've ever seen. The Phlox sprinkled among the TBs are wonderful too! I just keep going back and looking at them over and over, LOL.

I let my DG subscription expire a few months ago too. I realized I hadn't even been there for months, figured I wouldn't miss it, and haven't. Fewer and fewer folks I knew were around, and then the vibe seemed different to me, more like Garden Web, where I found a lot of folks to be argumentative, egotistical, or just downright rude. And it's very freeing not to have Terry policing every word- not that I'm a foul mouth, but she's pretty uptight, LOL.

I've kept up my DG subscription, Neal, but I'm getting to the same place. Every time I go on the iris forum it seems someone wants to argue. We've not had one argument here since we started. And your cubits are the same. I'm always up for a good discussion, but I don't wish to argue. This is gardening, after all.

So, I may be following in your footsteps. The people who wish to argue, and be rude can just keep themselves on DG, and have at it. Seems worse recently. Maybe it will calm down some when we can get outside. maybe it's just cabin fever making people cranky.

I must be on a different forum, as I haven't noticed too much argueing. I realize that some people don't have too much knowledge.

You're mainly on the NE forum. I don't think you see that much there. On irises I was just getting a lot of arguments from one person. I think we just really clashed. I can ignore that. On clematis they are nasty to each other. Constant digs.

I certainly don't mind lack of knowledge, unless the person insists they are right. We all can learn.

That's the kind of thing I was seeing. Lack of knowledge wasn't the issue, Lordy, the more I learn, the more I realize that I don't know, LOL. I got kinda over it when I mentioned that Chinese Wisteria is on the exotic invasive list for many southern states, and was told it was just because folks were too lazy to maintain their gardens, by someone in zone 5.

The first day of spring has arrived and it's sunny and the sky is blue here, and it's killing me because it's still too chilly to work outside! The forecast says it'll reach 70 again today....tapping foot, getting impatient!

I agree

I was country back when it really was.

I do find I now come here before the other sites.........I find more "resident experts" on my gardenweb sites - but I only go there once every couple of weeks. And I've learned to just ignore and never comment back on the postings of the few people who are experts on everything.........

You bet!

How many different ones are growing in the pot? They seem to be doing best so far.

And the other area is the boggy area?

They're all doing really well, Charleen.

Charleen, would you do me a really big favor, and post the pics over here.

http://cubits.org/irisforum/thread/view/51070/

I just really want to keep the results in one area. Thank you!

Might shoot the theory about where JIs will grow, Kath. So far, even Becky's in Florida have come back fine.

Now to see if they bloom?????
