Beautiful. I love and enjoy every one of my Iris plants. At our annual MG plant sale, we’ve had to stop offering them because they don’t sell. Interesting change in what younger gardeners are looking for and appreciating.
Oh my, that is interesting Judy. I do love them. Maybe they will cycle back in a few years in popularity. I’ve seen gladiolus and zinnia snubbed only to see them appreciated again in recent years. Curious what the best sellers might be in your area.
Two of the top plants are Bleeding Hearts and Lilacs. 🙂
Your Iris are so pretty. I do have one that will bloom, but they don’t do well here.
Thanks Judy. Has yours started to open yet? These took me completely by surprise.
I have one and it has opened. It will be appearing in a post soon.
I’m especially envious of the bearded Iris blooms, Susie. For some reason, they aren’t happy here any more, although I’m still hoping I’ll get a few blooms once we warm up a bit.
The bearded iris were well off my radar although I’d noticed the leaving were getting taller every day. These are the first ones that open each year and pretty much are on time.
Oh, so pretty, I’m envious! ❤
Lovely flowers and lovely photos of them. You capture their fragile-yet-fleshy mystique. It’s Iris season here, too, the Spring before Spring.
Thank you. Irises just fill my heart. Enjoy yours!
