Kathy, I have a feeling you'll see blooms. Seems like dividing and moving really energizes them sometimes. I've noticed some heirlooms that bloom like mad the year after they're planted and increase rapidly, then are stingy with blooms in years following. I wonder if that is normal for some of them?

Polly, for the first couple of years living here I so missed Irises, I just kept planting and planting. This year, it's Irises galore! While I'm no longer missing them, I am on the hunt for particular colors- think I'm going to have to order some nice pinks! Gotta keep making sure spring is full of excitement!

Good morning, I found one lonely Iris blooming yesterday, and lots of buds, if it would just stop raining and warm up with some sun maybe they would bloom. this one had a tag that said Tennison Ridge.

Our 2nd SDB 'Baby Snowflake is flowering. It is actually a historic SDB. Those plants were developed in the 1950s.

I do as well. Much learning on how to get them into the computer. I have the instructions & things didn't go well the last I tried. & then I lost all the ones which I took at the median convention. Sad

That's OK, Marian, I can't even remember which one it is.

Very pretty, but best of all it's blooming in TEXAS!

I copied this over to 'southern grown beardless irises', too Marian, just so I can keep track.

Why does it say Tennison Ridge (which Doris wrote) in this list but you click on it and it's Tennessee Ridge?

Must be a typo. The pictures are definitely of TENNISON RIDGE.

Doris, do you recall where that one came from? I have a clump that looks very much like that in full bloom, and I can't for the life of me recall where they came from. I just moved some amber colored Heuchera into the bed with them, its a gorgeous combination!

That would be a beautiful combo! I'm with Kath, I live for combos.

Betty, who is able to change the iris name on the TWiki? I haven't done any work on there since it first started, so I don't recall anything about it. Thank you and Brock and everyone else that has worked on that project, by the way.

Marian, no clue to the name, but it's a pretty one!

Neal, I love combo's too! I'm always bending over trying to get blooms in my line of sight to see if they would look good together :o)

My Lilliput Iris are starting to bloom. Finally, something!

''Sleepy Time'' is a beautiful sky blue.

''Time To Shine'' is a lovely light purple.

''Mary's Lamb'' is a pretty white and hard to photograph.

Baby's Blessed is a nice yellow.
