Best of the Best
At the beginning of iris season I asked forum readers to give opinions from experience I hadn't yet had for myself as to what iris they considered their best. Especially, if they had to pare things down to 10 due to space limitations. I am not going that extreme for real but needed that type of info.
I have had to seriously consider reducing beds in order to even be able to handle the maintenance and have, after finally seeing many in bloom that I had never seen in bloom before, been able to get a list of the top 10 for that amazingly satisfying eye appeal. Most of these I got to see for the first time. Here are the top 10 performers of about 200 different ones, the definate "keepers": Dusky Challenger, Temple of Time, Princess Caroline De Monaco, Sweetly Sung, Treasured, Romantic Evening,Gypsy Lord, Laced Cotton, Louisa's Song, Fatal Attraction.
There are many others that are gorgeous, but these were over the top for me.
Anyone else care to list which ones they were amazed at this year?
