Here is a picture of Moby Dick, if it helps.

The Sass family also released at least a couple of similar irises

These pictures were taken at the Sass Memorial Garden, but there are many Sass iris still growing in ditches and abandoned homesteads all over Nebraska and Iowa.

Ok Jo Ann, there weren't many fans anyway.

Charleen, mine are done too. Now I have trouble remembering what I already posted, LOL!

Kent, those are sooo close! I have something to go by on researching now. I had never heard of Hager, but I have heard of Sass.

One more picture. This gives a better look at the inside and the beard.

They certainly are lovely.I had convinced myself I wouldnt have any luck with them until Polly the enabler ,and I went to an Iris farm last year. The soil there was kist like mine,clay.
Now that I feel confident with Bayer Tree and Shrun drenching in early spring,I am hoocked. I plan to add more to the three or four I have now.

Charleen, I love the name. I do hope you get pictures next Spring.

Jo Ann, I've learned to not push the envelope with expensive flowers, but I am willing to try if someone else has had success :o)

I am glad I don't have to work in clay. We had it, well, the black sticky dirt that dried rock hard, at home. It wears you out to work it.

Polly has turned me on to iris. I wont be buying really expensive ones, Just not enough room here to take a chance on a plant that might not have enough room to grow.

Hi everyone. I am new to this site, matter of fact; hesitant to join since I am really bad at getting to my computer everyday. Poor old thing is on it's last legs. I live in Illinois and my passions are my pets,perennial gardening and crafts; among many other interests. My favorite perennials to my zone 5 is Peonies, Iris & Hostas. I believe my hobby/passion has gotten away from me and some say it is more of a "illness". It has taken me over and consumes my life....don't you just love it? I just can't stop planting more perennials. I will send some pictures later when I have more time, meanwhile here is just a couple you may enjoy. Hope I can keep up, so many wonderful topics.

Welcome, welcome!

Yes, please, drop in when you can. We won't make you post everyday, LOL. And if we ask you a question and you don't answer, we'll just come looking for you.

Looks like your puppy loves hostas too.

All of us don't arrive every day. I like your assistant gardner.

JoAnne Superstition iris gardens has a $3.oo TB list at the end of their regula listing. You might look there. However the shipping for one or two plants is expensive.

I just sent a order to Snowpeaks. Thanks for the info.

I was "into" Day Lilies when I started on the other website.
Someone had a DL for $250.00 ya gotta realllly love them to pay that much. The photo was beautiful.
The most expensive one I have is one that was given to me. Chocolate Cherry Dream.
Lets stick to iris here tho.

There is a gardener whose picasa albums were hilighted earlier this year,maybe last fall,winter I dont remember. She had beautiful iris gardens and thats what tipped me over for them.
Here is her site.I might have posted it awhile back.

She has just started 2011 albums

Hi everyone. Thank you for the welcome. Looks like God has blessed all of us with the love of our family, pets & gardens...in no partricular order. I have also placed an order with Snowpeak Iris and can not wait till they arrive in July. Denise has such beautiful iris. I could have ordered them all, but we all know that feeling. I feel like a kid. NOW COMES THE HARD PART, waiting for 2012 for the blooms. Great excitement to get me thru the winter. I am attaching a picture of an iris I received from another gardener. She did not know what it was called, and unfortuantely she has since passed away. Does anyone have an idea. It is approximately 10"-12" tall. I have some new pictures but I have not figured how to get this old computer to download them from my SD card, the memory on this old thing is very short. Sounds familiar.
