What is your very latest iris to bloom, not counting the rebloomers. I seem to be really heavy on the early.

Thanks!

Exclusivity was my last one to bloom, but other late ones are Legerdemain, Ball Room, Ring Around Rosie, Carnival Ride, Dipped in Dots, Rainy River and Whispering spirits.

Some that I really like the habbits of are Grateful Heart, Material Girl, Magical Moment, Tying Yellow Ribbons, Going Dutch, Crooked Little Smile, H.C. Stetson, Paul Black, Brazen Beauty, Gypsy Lord, Mastery, Double Ringer, Brilliant Idea, and Sharp Dressed Man. They seem to start Mid season, and bloom right up to the end with the late bloomers.

Interesting question. Most of my TBs finished about a week ago. Conjuration was wrapping up about then, as were Cajun Rhythm and American Maid. When I was out working in the yard yesterday, I noticed that I had two still blooming, though: Power Point and Child of Royalty. In fact, the bud on Child of Royalty still hadn't opened. So I've made a mental note that when I rearrange everything later this summer I'm going to put Cajun Rhythm, Child of Royalty and Power Point near each other, with plenty of room to spread, in hopes of cultivating big clumps that will give me a good late flush of blooms in some interesting colors.

So sad as my last blossom standing is "Midnight Oil" Here in SW Michigan on June 20. I should be grateful though as we have had a late season. Thumb of 2013-06-21/lcameruci/412144

Lana, that might be my last one too. I have a blackish one left, and I'll have to go check the tag. Great pic!

Thanks, Lucy!

Wow! That one is really black.

Pretty Kitty is only half open, and so is Auntie Claudie. I hope they finish opening today before the rain comes.

Just waved good-bye to the last iris in my garden....Time Will Tell, Recherché and Ring Around Rosie. This is very late for me to have blooms.

I just found out that Ring around Rosie and Child of Royalty are sisters, so makes sense, I guess.

No wonder. I am finally digging up a very late white peony because it always has dried while in Bud and I have records going back 8 years on it so I am it taking out finally. Now will have to find a taller plant that will take semi shade.

The only ones still blooming Made You Look, Oklahoma Centennial, Coffee Trader, Pretty Kitty, French Lilacs, Tropical Passion and Parisian Dawn, then they will be done for the year. Siberians still blooming but winding down, and of my 4 spuria, 2 of them have buds this year. Hurray! Anxiously awaiting for them to bloom.

I bought French Lilacs, and it hasn't bloomed yet. Glad to know it's a late one.
