Nice ! I planted Chirachoa Canyon last year, but it was a no-show this season...too dry to make much growth last year, altho it's growing like a weed this year! Col' Candelot was planted last year also, as a "waif", and really has done nothing! It's had a hard life tho, as the squirrels dug it up 3 or 4 times last year, and I had to move it this year when the power line fell in the bed. There is just a tiny speck of green starting to show, so maybe it will survive,after all the abuse!...Arlyn

I love that beard on "Glad". Think you may have mis-labeled Change of Pacet though.

I agree with Tom -- the beard on *Glad* just pops!!! Thumbs up

Beautiful!! I LOVE Glad. Looks like my Sea Power isn't going to bloom again this year. Its been about 5 years since it bloomed. Nice to see a picture of it. Thumbs up

Tom--Thanks for the correction. The stake broke off and was hard to read. I've now corrected it to "Charged Up"--sort of close spelling-wise, though not color-wise. Smiling

Yeah, the beards on Glad are obviously the attraction. I've been a little disappointed by the flower overall, though--other than the beard the color is mediocre, and the flowers don't stay fresh-looking very long (a substance issue, I guess).

These are lovely. I have tried to get a good bloom on Sea Power for years and have never had a bloom like that. Good pictures!!

Lovely. I think we have a flower still to open on 'full figured'.

You grew my favorite, Bruneau Jasper! I love that iris, but it does not seem to do well for many people. You have the touch. I love your photo of Lights, Camera, Action. I may have to try it. Cajun Rhythm is striking in your garden. Thank you for all of the lovely photos to drool over.

Thanks for all of the nice words.

Renee--Bruneau Jasper was the one I was probably most excited about, so I was very happy when it bloomed. I'm pretty sure that I don't have any kind of touch, though--just lucky. It did bloom really short and hasn't shown too much increase, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed that I can nurse it along to its full glory. I was so excited about it that I pollinated a couple of the blossoms. It set pods, which I was happy to see, but I'm now worried that that wasn't such a wise move--I may be asking too much of it. Ah well.
