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.
We have some growing down here call Cherokee or Trail of tears (I"m not good at remembering) Iris. It is one of the first Iris to bloom in the spring. i can't find it. I'll get you a pictures next spring.
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.
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.
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.
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.
My gardener pal is always working with me, she hates to be left in the house.Hope the pictures come thru ok.
