Part two coming later, this is part one.

Photobucket

Temple of Lights. This is a Rockytop intro and a bonus they sent me.

Winter Waltz. Just starting to bloom. Schreiners Iris from two years ago. I think this one will look really nice once the entire clump starts blooming.

Magical Encounter. Another Schreiners Iris bonus. I do really like it, don't have much else going on in pink!

Love Winter Waltz, very nice coloring. My Magical Encounter didn't bloom this year, I think it is my best pink.

A better picture of WINTER WALTZ.

Nancy- I had no other pinks so tried to get some last year but most are not blooming. I will see after bloom season if I need more, I think I might.

Winter Waltz really is pretty. I have Williamette Mist which has similar coloring, I really love that look. I have a few pinks, but none are really ruffled & fancy. I did get Happenstance, but it hasn't bloomed yet, it may be much better. I think Magical Encounter has the most pink color of any I have.

My pinks are all peachy. I like them, but the cooler pinks are really eye-catching.

I love Winter Waltz! I have that one too, and it looks lovely next to the deep purples. Temple of Lights is a pretty one too.

If you want pink, consider Happenstance. It was a prolific bloomer, over a long period of time. Schriners has it.

It is pretty and you know I want to order from Schreiners. Will see what I have after they all bloom. I need some lighter colors to make all the purples and deep colors pop more.

OMG!!!! Happenstance...WOW!!! I am such a newbie gardener, how/what do you feed these irises? My sad yard just does nothing compared to anybody elses...I just don't know about soil amending and feeding. Soooo much to learn!

Depending on the soil, very little to no fertilizer and ALWAYS a low nitrogen fertililer. High nitrogen makes for lots of leaves and no blooms. Plant the rhizomes high so that they get sunlight in order to bloom.

I just really like WinterWaltz. It is such a lovely soft blue. It really looks blue while so many look purple to me.
