More Iris Photos

Wow, what a show my irises are putting on this year! Here are some more photos:



'Earl of Essex'



'First Interstate'



I'm pretty sure this is the 'Pride of Ireland' cultivar - it's much greener in person than what the photo indicates...



Another look at that gorgeous 'Spiced Custard'


There are several more that I haven't seen yet: the near-black 'Swazi Princess,' the bold orange 'Copper Classic,' the wildly flecked 'Gnus Flash,' and my favorite from last year, 'Starship Enterprise.'

I absolutely love iris!! They are on my list of must haves.. Beautiful flowers you have there.. Do you have a favorite vendor to buy your plants from..?

Beautiful! My irises aren't doing so well this year, so it's nice to enjoy the photos of yours!

Hi and Thanks! All of these bulbs came from Park's (www.parkseed.com). I don't think all of them are the color I ordered, however; was supposed to have a near-black variety and it seems they sent a non-descript yellow one instead. Oh well - they're all lovely. Just wish the flowers lasted longer.

Wow! What pretty flowers and great photos! Makes me want to get busy gardening. Just a bit too early to do much with frost likely for another month yet. Oh! I'm waiting impatiently!

I have a photo of an Iris in my neighbors yard. I don't know the name of this Iris.
