I love irises! I'm waiting for my new Schreiner's catalog so I can order more to plant in the fall!

Our lives have been in a whirlwind during the past year. I cannot find my info that I saved on my irises so I'm not 100% sure of all of their names. But here is what I have blooming right now...

This is the last of my dwarf irises. I also have dark purples and periwinkles.

And the Tall bearded....

I believe this is Autumn Tryst...


These are very special to me because when my grandma passed away in September 2002 I dug up a small chunk of her garden. I thought I was digging up Star of Bethlehem since those were what I grabbed a hold of as I pulled them up with the soil. But lo and behold these babies came up the following spring. I didn't have a clue I had rhizomes as they had already died back by the time I dug my treasure up. I don't know their name...they are old though. This pic is from last year. They bloom mid-season. I LOVE them!!

I never did get any Star of Bethlehem but I do have something unfamiliar growing along side of Grandma's irises now....I have no clue what they are. The leaves are iris-like but thin and whippy and you can see a few small white buds forming. For all I know I have another treasure...I would love them to finally be the Stars! Any ideas would be appreciated.

Jel48, I hope you don't mind that I posted your flowers, but they are SO pretty and you had them listed in your post so I just wanted to add.

Joyce, the photos are almost as beautiful as in person. They are all gorgeous, but it is the Imprimis that I covet. Carmellia
