Iris, 10th May

Only at home today, although I do have some of the same on the allotment, but didnt go there this day.
Firstly named varieties, Laurel Park quite an old type

These next ones all variety crosses, done by me.

Some are second generation using earlier crosses.

Are you going into commercial production with any of your crosses, Siris, or is for fun only? Some beauties there.

What gorgeous Irises … I think Role Model is my fave, but it’s hard to choose!

You must be so proud of the collection, Siris...I also favour Role Model.

Loving your own pastel blue.

They are all beautiful Siris. I could not choose just one.

Anget, I only grow them for my own pleasure and to see what I can create. I enjoy looking into their parents' characteristics.
Meadowland, Role Model is such a good parent.
Klahanie, it is easier to discard any rejects.

Suddenly they are nearly all flowering and surrounded by blooming Gladiolus byzantinus.

Beautiful collection you have Siris, I love how you’ve created your own too :) I have one that was my grandma’s but it’s never flowered I think my mum said it’s a deep purple though.

They are so beautiful. My favourite is the pale lilac one.

My 2 most favourite ones I created have not flowered so far this year. Only seen them once, before I relocated from my allotment.
