Jamie and I have over forty different Iris in the garden right now. Japanese, Flag, Louisiana, Dutch, African, Border Bearded and Tall bearded, it would be impossible to choose a favorite one. Oddly enough we don’t have any Siberian… that will certainly have to change. This first iris is a Blue Flag named ‘Contraband Girl’.
This Iris is a pass along from a gardening buddy online. It’s a Japanese Iris and it’s gorgeous, but I have no idea what the name is. I call it 'Bethie’s Japanese'.
About two years ago, another online plant friend sent me a box of un-named bearded. This is the first one to bloom and I’ve affectionately named it ‘Polly’s Blue’.
This beautiful pink is ‘Beverly Sills’.
Once again another pass along, we’ll call this one ‘Judy’s Blue’.
And… ‘Judy’s Yellow’. This iris is the best bloomer in the garden. It starts blooming in December and will continue into May. It beats all I’ve ever seen.
'In Your Dreams'
'Point In Time'
This is Louisiana Iris ‘Sinfonietta’
I believe this is ‘Baltic Elegy’ the storm blew away the labels and I mis-tagged it as ‘Juris Prudence’.
This iris is giving us blooms for the first time this year too, this is ‘Iceland’.
