Well, since you seem to have a lot of it, I guess you could put me down for some. Smiling I suddenly see my historic bed getting enlarged again.

I think your historic bed is getting "right-sized". Rolling on the floor laughing

It seems to me many of the historics tolerate growing conditions in a bigger area of the country (and world). Many pre-date the term "global warming" and thrive weather cold, hot, rainy, dry. I guess they're tough, like many of our ancestors.

Wow, what beauties. Hurray! Hurray! The oldies have a stated elegance about them. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to make sure that I have some oldies among my moderns. Thumbs up

Can't remember if I ever sent that one to you, or not, Ed Confused ….but That's one that I'm digging for HIPS, so if you want some, I'll see you get some ! You, too, Deborah.....I will put some in your box of Knotty Pine, when it goes out. As near as I can figure, I put the wrong zip code, on your other box....so, *someday* it will probably come back here Shrug! ! I send...AND receive...so many boxes of irises, that I truly DON'T know, "what's coming, and what's going" *Blush* !
Nibelungen (wish I understood German!) is a super fine grower, and bloomer, for me. And stands up well to most iris "calamities ", as well.

Would love to have it, Arlyn. I hope it means - likes heat and little rain. We've gone dry pretty quickly.

I looked up "Nibelungen:
1. Any of a race of subterranean dwarfs whose hoard of riches and magic ring were taken from them by Siegfried.

doesn't say anything about rain Shrug!

Rain all around us, but not on us. Rolling my eyes. I went to town to pick up some dinner this and big drops fell as I was returning. So I rushed back home, opting not to go to my friends house (she's out of town) to water her flower borders. Not another drop all evening, but storm warnings are showing on the tv for a couple of counties away. My borders look terrible, as I haven't been outside much due to the heat alert/heat wave (with high humidity) which finally broke yesterday. It was making my asthma flare up. Thumbs down

Thanks for adding Nibelungen, (that's quite a mouthful) Arlyn. Thumbs up

Ed, here in midstate SC, it's either feast or famine, when it comes to rain. With the high heat, things dried up pretty quickly. Grumbling
