Marilyn - I see you have Ocelot. My dad and I want to order this one this year. Can I ask how it has performed for you? Stalk strength, branching, bud # sturdiness of blossoms? I am in Michigan too but quite a bit further south near Kalamazoo, but at least we are close to the same area. Thanks so much, Lana Smiling

Hi Lana, I just ran outside to look at my Ocelot. The stalks are really strong and I have never had to stake them, 3 branches and 4-5 buds. Ocelot blooms here every year and is usually the first one to bloom, but this year Beyond Borders beat it.

Here are some more.

Okay, another shot of Roper's Revenge. This one has spurs on it.

Hilarious! Polly, the plant behind it was covered with leaf spot and I needed to cover it up. I will be working on putting my new ones in the database, only have a couple done so far.

Masai Warrior is awesome! I was worried it wouldn't look like the picture when it bloomed, but I think it is my new favorite one. Hurray!

Tom, I love the first one too!

Mary Ann, I ordered it from Appalachian Iris Garden, but their web site isn't there this year. They do have a Facebook page, and I know they sell on Ebay under something like tn-tigger. I ordered 4 different irises from them last year and all of them bloomed this year.

Oh my! I've done business with tn-tigger before. They were trying very hard to get away from Ebay and run their business on a website instead. I wonder what happened?

I'll check with her. I've several of hers in my collection! She sends wonderful rhizomes!!

I agree, and I would definitely order from her again, except I am not ordering anything this year. Rolling on the floor laughing

Well, we didn't get the rain, so I ran out and took some more pictures this morning, and still a lot of buds not open yet.

Jerry, that was is different, but the falls are really droopy.

I took a whole bunch of pictures yesterday and here are some of them, still irises with buds on them. This is my happiest time of the year. Smiling

Grandchildren are my greatest joy.
Superb pictures them all but I am especially taken with Mercy Marci......and I normally don't like flounces much. I like Dragon King in my garden.
