Oh, I just love that Spuria iris. I wish mine would bloom. I have had it at least four years and no blooms yet! Oh well, I guess I will just enjoy yours. Lovely tall bearded blooms. Lovely Senorita is my favorite today.

Used to grow Dakota Smoke: a very unique flower, do you agree? I like its blend of colors.

Lovely Senorita is my favorite here. I thought Dakota Smoke was smokier- the Schreiner's photo shows it looking like a bitone.
The rose is wonderful.

Yes, I bit on the Schreiner's photo. It is, as Mike says, a unique flower, this pic may not show as much of the color blend. It isn't a bitone though, just a graduation of the color.

Rita, I onder why yours doesn't bloom. If you want a piece of this one, I can send it. It has multiplied greatly and blooms very well. Not subject to the spots like tall bearded ones.

Nancy, you are like me, you just like blooms. thanks for the NKC song, ken.
