Rita,

I am looking at various online iris vendors, which one would you recomment to buy from? I of course want them to bloom as soon as possible.

Very beautiful iris and photography as usual,Rita,

Brilliant Disguise is my pick of these, but Jumping Jack Flash is very appealing too.

I miss my iris.

You have so many beautiful ones and I know you had a fantastic iris season. But we never want the blooms to end.

Flame Amber and House Afire are so bright! I love those bright colors. Your photo of Beauty Becomes Her looks like Easter, with the light blue iris and the pink in the background. Thanks, Rita! More beauty.

I added those Dutch Iris to the iris bed last fall to add more color to a first year bed. You know I like a riot of color. Turns out I just love the effect of the Dutch Iris mixed in amoung the bearded iris. And when I was ordereing for the space I choose lots of color for my new iris. It is turning out well.

I LOVE everyone of them!!! I am getting hooked up with MidnightGardener, to the best iris depots around these parts!!! I feel a shopping spree/frenzy coming on!!! And a few more beds dug!!!ha! I still have to put borders on the beds I have as DH is a maniac with his weedwacker!!!grrr! So far have lost: Filbert tree/twig, flowering quince(2), a blueberry, rhodo, rose, wegelia, sheesh, the list goes on, all these babies....cut down in their infancy! So have hauled scrounged building bricks to get some borders done. But def worth building a nice couple of beds for IRISES!!!!
