Hi all,
Here are a few of my new irises blooming! I got New Leaf, Spin-Off, and Rip City from Schreiner's. Cajun Rhythm and Total Recall were nursery purchases.

Enjoyed seeing your iris in their garden setting. You've incorporated them beautifully!

Spin-Off is one of my favorites and Cajun Rhythm is on my list.

Your garden pathway is so lovely. Geat job with the iris and roses combos.

I love the color of English Charm, it reminds me of orange sherbert. Yummy :-))

Gorgeous garden! I like that parasol idea. We always have a couple of hot days that "melt" iris blooms, and I imagine you have quite a few.

Thanks. We'll see how long the parasols last- they are made of tissue paper.

I'm so anxious for all of the other new iris to bloom.
I'm still waiting on Mexican Holiday, Fine Wine, Impressionist, Frequent Flyer, and Starship Enterprise. I may have to wait until next year to see SE, it has just started to grow. I also bought Ruby Slippers before I learned that the teeny irises don't bloom in Socal. I may be shipping her off to a new home on the east coast soon...

I've got English Charm and NEw LEaf, in fact, I just noticed NEw Leaf blooming well after an absece of some years. I moved man of my iris to sunnier quarters and am being rewarded seeind old friend.

Woud ya'll consider New Leaf a luminata? I do.

Renee, I am new here and just got bit by the iris bug. Roses have been my obsession. I love the layout of your garden with the roses and iris cobination. I am a southern ca. transplant to the PNW. When I look at your photo's I can imagine the souther ca. sunshine on my back and the sounds and smells of the garden as I stroll down that beautiful path. Thanks for sharing. Patti

So pretty! Thanks for sharing! I ordered a Cajun Rhythm from BlueJ Iris, I can't wait to get it!

Thanks for the compliments. This weekend I went to Greenwood Daylilies and Irises and got Jennifer Rebecca. I can't wait to see it bloom to see what color it really is here. I'm not going to plant it until I see.

Kprp, yes, I think New Leaf is a luminata. It certainly is luminous.

tabarhodes, you will not be disappointed by Cajun Rhythm. It's still blooming. I can't stop taking pictures of it.

I don't think my other new irises will bloom this year. Boo hoo. But the daylilies are all ready to bloom!

Renee
