You should try some species such as John Wood, some of Anita's Versicolor they grow well almost any where and they are so different and extend the iris bloom later.

John Wood is in bloom here but about 2 weeks late and Anita's have buds which I hope to see before I leave for Canada on Mon. Lucky my worker is coming over and taking pictures for me, watering in the greenhouse and watering all the new baby (up to 15') trees we just potted up.

I will try to post a couple of pictures from Canada but no promises but when I come back will post many.

Dee, extending the season is what I do need! These all bloom a short time apart. I have one Japanese Iris that could be added to the group too. It hasn't put up a flower stalk yet. I have Fortune.

I can't wait for your pictures!

Safe, happy trip!

Steve is one of my all time favorites. Nice pic, too.

Yes, definitely some species and some spuria and some Japanese. LOL, poor Sally, we'll have her over run with beardless irises.

I can't imagine why you lost Super Ego, your conditions look perfect for siberians.

Still in IB season.

Dee The plant with the pollen I was going to send did not bloom this year. I hate it when they have minds of their own.

I finally got out and took pictures of the iris before they are done.

Hi!

I joined awhile ago (don't remember when) and wanted to say hello. I live in Springfield, IL but am from Maryland originally. I LOVE iris but don't know the names of most and don't label the ones I have planted. I am just one to try to keep adding to my "collection," share what I have with others, and drink in the beauty of them all when they bloom.

I am a Master Gardener which means I have learned how much I DON'T know! Hilarious! I love being outside and have a lot to learn about everything but I'm working on it!

A special mention: when I joined Dave's Garden, Mitt sent me some iris and a book. He furthered my love of them and I will be eternally grateful to him for his kindness and the joy he finds in sharing his love of iris!!

Warm Wishes to all,

Susie

I have an iris that smells like Root Beer! I don't know what it is, but I love it! Here are some pix of what I have...

My first (and currently) only orange:

Welcome, Susie! We love to show off our iris, and I'm glad you've already shared some pictures with us. I wonder who will be the first to guess the names of her iris? I know the first reminds me a bit of BARBARA MY LOVE...

Welcome Susie! Lovely irises. They sure don't need names to be beautiful.

Mitt is a great guy, that's for sure.

Hi Susie -- welcome!! I'm absolutely anal about identifying my Irises -- it drives me crazy not to know their names!!! However -- you don't have to be anal like me to grow them, enjoy them, and marvel at their beauty!! :-) Yours are beautiful! Smells like root beer????????
