Irises in Bloom

Irises in Bloom (Iris)

I love Irises. I have many, but noticed this year I had no pink irises. These were given to me by a friend. Photo taken 6/2007.

What a gorgeous colour. Mine havent flowered. They are new to this ground so hopefully they will do ok. I'm never sure if I should plant them in bone dry spots or soggy places. Mine is in wet but well drained with the rhyzomes slightly proud of the ground.

Thanks! Mine are in drier, sandy ground. They do fine with little care. I noticed I had no pink irises this Spring, so will have to get some next year.

Marguerite, yes, I love bringing them in. My sis-in-law does painting on china pieces & gave us this lovely vase last Christmas with her paintings of irises on it. Just a beautiful vase... When they were in bloom in May, I cut an arrangement and sent her a photo.
