First Iris Blooms of the Year.

My first iris to bloom last year was SPOT STARTER a bonus I received from Schreiners and it is the first again today. But it does have some company. Hurray, TB iris season is underway.

This one is OPEN YOUR HEART a bonus iris from Rockytop Iris.

This was really odd. KICKAPOO KANGEROO blooming all the way hidden in the folliage. I had never had that before. It has plenty of other stalks ready to bloom so I will be getting a better view of the flower. It did not bloom for me last year so this is first view of the flower.

Lots of flowers to open.

The first of my Siberian Iris to open this spring. Way ahead of anything else, no other bloom stalks even.

I'm anxious to see Kickapoo Kangaroo out where it should be too. I have had that happen a few times, not this year though. My Siberian iris just opened a couple of days ago, funny how close our timing is one Siberians & different on bearded iris. Still like Spot Starter

I almost missed realizing that there was a bloom on Kickapoo Kangeroo. I just happened to notice the splash of color as I was walking by on the way to Spot Starter. I am sure it will look much better when it blooms on a real stalk LOL!

Kay- I know you love purple and KK is purple and very crazy splashed colors.

Nancy- I wouldn't go by the bloom on China Spring to say it is Siberian Iris bloom time around here. Nothing else even has stalks so this one is out of the gate way ahead of all others and in a different time zone.

I like Spot Starter too. That second photo is really good- look at all of those lush green plants!
