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.
