Here are the iris blooms for today:
EARL OF ESSEX
They all look great. Love the color on MORNING SNOW and my favorite is MESSENGER.
Beautiful ones, your Clarence is really looking good.
They really look good Jason. I think I still like Clarence the best, but Anaconda Love is striking.
Blazing Sunrise is a wonderful and different color. Your Clarence just glows. I like your raised beds too.
Crazy name for a red iris -- Morning Snow. Looks good.
I think Messenger is my favorite of these, but they are all so pretty.
I too thought Morning Snow was a crazy name for a red iris, so I looked it up. According to an earlier GardenWeb thread, there is no iris registered with the name Morning Snow, at least in '08. You may have Morning SHOW. I found a few pics of that online and they look similar. Here is a link to one of them:

Casey - You are right. The name of it is MORNING SHOW. The tag on mine said MORNING SNOW but it is wrong. I know Marg has the same iris as she posted a picture of hers the same day I did and hers said MORNING SNOW as well. Checked it out on Dave's Garden and sure enough, it's MORNING SHOW! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. I appreciate it!
Oooh, I love them!!
Blazing Sunrise is such a lovely, light colour ... airy and beautiful.
And I love Anaconda Love too. Rich colour and unique, I'm keeping my eyes peeled for this one :)
Very nice! You remind me that I had Clarence years ago. Any idea where Morning Snow got its name? Lovely color, but hard to connect with snow. :-)
cziga - Believe it or not, I found my Anaconda Love at Walmart for around 7 dollars at the beginning of May.
alisande - Morning Snow is not actually that irises name. It's actually named MORNING SHOW.
