My Iris Order---and a Thank You! :)

aunt_lou(Z5 OH)June 8, 2008

Want to give a big thanks to shihtzumom51 [hope I spelled that right :)] for responding to my post for Jennifer Rebecca with a recommendation to check out Wild Iris Rows. They had positive reviews at GardenWatchdog so I checked them out. Beautiful iris at fantastic prices!!!----and they had J.R.!!! At $3.00 a piece [except for one $5 one] , I couldn't resist buying a dozen! Mr. Hester was so friendly and helpful over the phone too. I am so excited about my soon coming iris that I just had to tell y'all about it!

I ordered: 1. Jennifer Rebecca, 2. Amethyst Flame, 3. Aplomb, 4. Sea Power, 5. Stairway to Heaven, 6. Pond Lily, 7. Maria Tormena, 8. Dusky Challenger, 9. Sultry Mood, 10. Victoria Falls, 11. Ride the Wind, and 12. Honky Tonk Blues.

Woo Hoo!!!! Can't wait til they get here!

Thanks again Sharon----and my friend, Olga, who put up the original post for me. :)

Thanks, gmason! Wild Iris Rows has a list of their favorites---top performers for them---so I went by that in part along with the colors I like best. I already knew that I wanted Jennifer R. and Olga clued me into what a ruffley beauty Sea Power was. I lurk here at the iris forum and read the posts on favorites and saw Dusky Challenger mentioned quite often so had to have him!

I am pretty new to growing iris---just fell in love with them last summer, as a matter of fact, so I am pretty excited about this first big iris order. Can't wait until they arrive and I can get them in the ground!!!
