It's a pretty nice iris, too, Ed ! It's a "BB", by Jim Hedgecock (Comanche Acres), and received quite a bit of press. I went out to "try" to get some more pix....but the rain has pretty ell shot THAT idea ! Lots of spoiled blooms....and several broken stalks Glare ....but I needed a few "comparison shots", and, wet or not, I got them Shrug! .

BATIK (Ensminger 1985 / 86) is starting to "clump up", nicely ! I have two plants, of this one, and while the blooms look the same....the habits are wildly different ! one is at one end of the property, and the other is about as far away from it as it could be....a "whole city block"further, maybe it's the weather, up there Rolling on the floor laughing !

Rain stopped, none overnight either. So sun is out allowing some weed work and some measurements and pictures, although some show some wind/rain effects:

Arlyn, your season is ahead of mine despite me being in a slightly "warmer" climatic zone, of course based only on winter temps. I do have several of the Sass whites, but doubt their authenticity.

I took no pics today in the rain and memory has already failed as to what pix I took yesterday in our one sunny day.
