Hello, it seems that I've lost many of my Iris collection. I believe it was a over moisture problem, but didn't catch it in time. :(

If anyone has any to share I would be very grateful, They were one of the first bloomers in my yard.

Shirley it is beautiful. I love love love purple Iris. Second fave is Yellow.

Thanks Shirley for your iris photos. My last bloom was just this week. I must have all the other blooms coming on to make up for the lack of these, my favorites. Now feed them, spray them when it rains and spread some of the crowded ones out with pieces planted in new, sunny & most important! the less weed-infested locations.

Heres another shot of it.

My new fav!!  Alas, here in Southern Ontario Canada... our iris are nearly finished.  They sure don't last long.

PM me your address and I'll send you some of my surplus. :)

Yes, I have extras in a holding area. I have to get the weeds out from that area. So I can see if any of them are blooming. I believe there are 3 types in there.
This year I have a new one that will be flowering in the pond, Last year the lake where a friend lives was low so I convinced him to dig me up some of the iris and cattails so I could put them in our pond.

I will have some of the old fashioned kinds ready to go in September. I am replacing them because I probably have over a hundred of those two --Dauntless & Calif Gold. . . .

Comment by Lorraine Smith Pacific NW on May 28, 2013 at 7:35pm

Looks like you have a few iris yourself--I saw some growing in your "holding area"? About 3 yrs ago I decided since they were my favorites, I would actually spend some $$ accumulating a few different kinds. That opened the floodgates to friends & neighbors donating to the cause. I use Preet & yes mulch to keep the billions of weeds down. I don't have alot of sun beyond minimum 6 hours. Some years our weather will be too darn dreary & they won't even bloom. If I ever get a surplus though, I will remember you! Fellow iris devotees are somewhat rare in these parts. . .
