I grow many kinds of iris – the little guys in the rock garden, tall bearded, siberian, the stunning japanese ensata, and louisiana. They will unfold on their own time schedule.. some have begun..
Iris reticulata: These little beauties grow in the rocky soil at the edge of the rock garden and in the nooks an crannies of the shade garden. They originally came from in front to the smokehouse at my childhood home in Connecticut. I think they were there when we moved in to that house which was 1957.. so they’ve been around awhile.
Dwarf bearded iris: The purple ones come from my friend Betty
I got these at the garden club plant sale, I will have to find out who donated them
