I've forgotten which Burton irises you have, Ed...let me know, and I'll "fill in" from what I have.

Most all the medians...SDB's, especially, need a lot of attention in the beds....grass has "infiltrated", clumps have gotten "too large", etc. My plan is to start on them, as soon as the last TB's are done blooming. Downside is, some folks will be getting two "shipments"...early, and late Sticking tongue out

a great many irises aren't going to bloom this year. The 2 gardeners are too old to fertilize the beds properly.. shade is spreading mightily.

I hope it’s not the end of your season, Arlyn. I just found this thread. Lots of beauties I have never seen or heard of before. I think I need to add more of these beauties to my beds. Thanks for the beautiful views of your beds. I sure wish I lived in your neighborhood. I’d be happy to dig and help divide any you were willing to share. Sticking tongue out

The season IS almost over.....I'd say the bearded are 'all over', except ...hopefully...for some rebloom. The spuria iris are at 'peak", now, but that big rain, yesterday, sure ruined their appearance ! Spuria stand up to that sort of abuse, pretty well, but, it rained HARD !!
