Whoo-hoo! Irises now making BUDS!!

esther_bMay 11, 2013

Thanks to the great advice from this forum, I transplanted the 3 mystery irises to a sunnier spot in my garden and made sure to keep the rhizomes exposed. My reward: I see purple-looking buds on stems! This is the first time these irises (someone planted in my garden, probably to surprise me) will ever have bloomed. When they bloom, I will take pics to see if the forum folks can help me to ID the variety.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yay! We look forward to seeing the pics.
