You have some big clumps blooming already, Arlyn. My 4th TB is trying to open, maybe by evening. It was 32 again this morning, so things move slow, just like me. Hilarious!

I remember Cherie as a kid. First pink TB which I ever saw.

Red Zinger looks similar to one of my NoIDs. It was labeled as Spartan and the color looks right, but the beard is old gold, not red. Looking through the HIPS photos possibles are Caliente, and Inferno. If I never find the correct name, I really like the color and will keep it.

I looked up Cherie on the wiki iris Several other wow's in those pictures too.

I just noticed that the 2nd, and 4th bed shots show "she who must be obeyed" thinking up another job for me !There are daylilies alng the house, where she is "looking",and , I think, she wants them dug, and divided up, this year....maybe she will forget, by that time Sticking tongue out !!

Thanks for the comments !

Yeah, there are lots of "drive bys" going on! I need to tell a story on myself ! Tom sent me some irises...maybe 4 years ago, now..."Man's Best Friend", and "Petit Tiger" were included. When I planted them (in the same bed), I inadvertently "switched" the tags. When the next bloom season came, Tom noticed that what I "said" was "PT", was REALLY "MBF". I investigated, after a few days...checking tags, and lists, and "meant" to correct the mistake, but, apparently forgot to do it, so, again THIS year, Tom noticed the error! Anyway, when I saw his post, I shut off the computer , went to the bed...and did what I SHOULD have done , in the first place !! Hilarious!

Here's some from this morning. And, I don't do "as I should", and give each individual hybridizer credit least, not often enough *Blush* , so, I want to, again, thank all the hybridizers, vendors, and , of course, all my "iris buddies", for all these iris !!

Pinnacle is a great looking iris...and was sort of a "first", as far as breeding goes, but, it's not really a good 'doer", here in Illinois. Slow to increase, and sort of a 'shy" bloomer. That said, it never seems to be troubled by rot, or leafspot...and, it IS a real "looker".
