'cemetery Iris'

bkay2000August 13, 2010

Hi,

This is my first post to the iris forum.

I have a ton of what we call "cemetery iris". They are white, short and bloom very early. I also have a ton of a similar one that's taller and blooms a couple of weeks later.

What can you do with iris you have too many of?

They have really nice barter value. Post an ad on Craigslist that you will trade them for other plants.

As soon as it cools off, I'll pull them up. I have a ton of other "gifts" that need a place.

Thanks,

Bkay

These are just plain old "cemetery iris", or at least that's what we call them in Texas. They're the ones that you can't kill. Once established, they just keep on keeping on. BUT, they are small and plain. They bloom with the first daffodils or shortly after.

How does "for postage" generally work?
