Sticking out bottom lip and pouting. I don't think I got that one Charleen. I still have two yet to bloom so we will see. I have one that has a couple of big buds on it but I'll have to wait a few days to see what it is. If not, Polly I'm going to have to have one like Charleens got. LOL I'm such an addict for these little sweet thangs. By the way, I'm having computer problems and will not be on here until I get it in the shop. In the mean time I'm going to try to ship ya'll a start of the big Pink La Iris either sometime this weekend or Monday.
This is really a very pretty pink iris with a big fat bloom. The color is a little off in this photo.
That pink LA is so pretty, I know just where I'm gonna put mine!
I noticed some fatty fans on some JIs today, so blooms are on the way! I've been in Iris Heaven this spring, they have been breathtaking. I've been so enraptured with the Irises, it hasn't even bothered me that several Lilies are no shows this year. Burrowing rodents were the culprits in one bed, but in a couple of others I have no explanation- at least 3 big, established clumps of Asiatics are simply gone. Oh well, space to plant something new, LOL!

golly gee it is hard for me to believe that you have beardless bloom, my medians are still not at peak and no TB yet in bloom so no beardless yet.
Great for you to test for Polly Charlene to see if we can push the seasons on the beardless. I love my iris and can not tell you wish I love the most, just think IRIS will do. From Feb to August...what more can a gal ask for.
My first Sibs came from from my first gardening inspiration, a sweet older lady who lived down the road from my childhood home. She had flowers everywhere, her family thought she was nuts for paying $50 for a single Iris. Maybe so, but it's the kind of crazy we can all understand, LOL. When I knew her I was a teen, and she was no longer acquiring new varieties by that time, but still lovingly caring for all she had collected. She only had the one variety of Sibs, sprinkled here and there all over the garden in big, well established clumps, so I assume they are one of the old standby varieties.
