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...

Dynamite....

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.

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