Here's one of my MDB's Flirty Eyes. Got this from Phil Cook. He has a display garden of MDB's at his home in northern VT. It's in bloom early May here but the snow is already gone now (facing south).

oooo a true blue and not a purpley blue- just added it to my list. I'm going to Parkland Nurseries in May and they often carry MDBs. Maybe I'll find it there Smiling

Oh Lucy, I want that little black baby with the bright blue beards. What's so funny is I'm not usually fond of the real dark irises. But that thing is just tooooooo cute.

This is blooming today at my house.Thumb of 2011-03-28/lovelyiris/3da644
Thumb of 2011-03-28/lovelyiris/f55554 I love horns or flounces on irises.

Love your choices, Jo Ann!

There's a TB co op going on that mamajack is doing. A really long list of varieties available from an elderly home grower needing to lessen the maintenance load.

Dnut, I think beardeds and Asiatic Lilies make a great combo, although I have to curb my inclination to put them too close together- I can tell ya first hand, untangling rhizomes from a clump of Lilies is challenging! I pretend like I'm planting shrubs when I'm spacing them now, and those kind of dimensions are in keeping with the kind of presence they have in the garden. I'd suggest tossing in some spring bulbs, a few OT Lilies, and something for fall, and your "Iris garden" can be colorful all season. Geez, I'm such a plant pig, it's no wonder I over crowd, LOL.

Hi Claudette! Looking forward to learning more about your garden and the varieties you grow! This bunch can tell you everything (and more) you could want to know about Irises, or at the very least point you in the right direction. And around here, no matter how many Irises you have, they'll have ya yearning for 100s more!
