Wow, this is early, Renee! My irises are just barely looking like they are getting ready to bloom. I have a pretty variegated leafed iris with a pale purple bloom that I'd like to ID. When it blooms, I'll share a photo of it. I need to add more irises in my garden. I'm re-doing my 4 knot gardens in a few weeks, and that's where I want to plant them. I have to find the best place to order irises, preferably re-blooming ones. Very lovely. What is the tiny white flower at the foot of the irises (I see your Spirea in the background!)

Patty, the little white flowers are paludosum daisies, annuals that reseed. The variegated irises are generally iris pallida or argentea, I think. There are lots of great online iris sellers. Ask when you are ready- they will not be shipping rhizomes until August, but now's the time to order.

Thanks, Renee. I'll check out both those variegated varieties. I'd love to put in an order, now. That way, I can get what I want, which are more of the variegated ones to fill in some bare places in my knot garden, and then a few more repeat bloomers ;-)

Okay, went and looked at both variegated iris cultivars, and it's definitely iris pallida based on the pale lavender blue flower color. And I just love how sweet the little paludosum daisies look. I'll have to see if I can find a place for those in my knot garden :-)

Wow that's early. Mine have just started waking up. However the roses are really early. Odd winter we've had.

Beautiful Iris!

So lovely! What is the bush in back of the iris with white flowers?

I can answer that for Renee :). That's Spirea.

I'm falling down on the job here- haven't been posting the Spirea of the Day photo. :)

Beautiful, Renee! Is RD an early or mid-season bloomer? March seems early.

It blooms very early, then in the spring, then continues to bloom until January with breaks here and there. It's another iris by Ben Hager, like Total Recall. Great rebloomers.

The foliage and plant growth is funky and wide,so give it room.
