A few blooms

1st bloom for Jurassic Park. I bought JP years ago, & when it bloomed it looked just like my Edith Wolford. So very hard sometimes to tell an iris from pictures. Last year a friend sent me JR, & there is a definite difference :) Frankly, I think I like the colors of Edith better, but this is a nice plant. We've been having lots of heavy winds here, I've had buds & stalks just snapped off-some of new to my garden iris :( JR has been standing up to it all

Thanks!
I've had Earl for several years, it is my most dependable rebloomer, ALWAYS reblooms in the fall. Earl, Harvest of Memories, & Daughter of Stars are my best reblooming iris.
They are all good multipliers too. I have clumps of Earl in several places.

I wasn't too crazy over Jurassic Park - love Edith!

How do you like the color of Cranapple?

RE: two more

SEveral years ago I was in my red phase & got several. I'm over it now :) I do like Cranapple, but I have Enternal Fire that I like better. They are a similar size & height, I just like the color a bit better on EF, but Cranapple multiplies better. Cannonball is a larger flower & more ruffled, I like that one too

I'm glad to hear your answer. I was thinking I should probably get Cranapple - color looks so good in your photo - and hear what an excellent iris it is.

Ooh, yes, Cannonball looks very good.
