Mini irises putting on a show (pics)

melaroma(6)May 5, 2010

I bought these last year on special at Lowes. This spring it multiplied four times it size and this is what it looks like:

And they still have buds on them that have yet to bloom!

I will be dividing them in a few weeks and giving some away. I also have purples ones but made the mistake of planting them in the shade and so far no blooms.

Aren't they pretty! They sure are a big splash even if a small flower. Lovely color also.

Thanks guys! The plant label only says dwarf bearded iris and it is about ten inches tall. I bought them at lowes early summer for two bucks each since they were done flowering.

Goodness gracious. I don't think I could part with any of those if I had them. What a wonderful show they put on!
