Thankyou . I love irises and it is always a challenge as some years the plants will not bloom .

I try to get some new varieties each year but sometimes it is like the tulip bulbs...in that what you get is not the plant on the label.

You have had that problem too, huh? I found a local nursery who have the packaged stuff...but they also have huge bins filled with saw dust and bulk corms, bulbs and rhizomes... there is a chance for stuff to get mixed up there too...but whatever you get is always amazing! lol. I prefer this because you can really give them a good look-over and don't get any clinkers like you occassionally do with the packages.
