Re: Spring sprang sprung

My reticulatas do have a name, but can't recall it just now. It was a
cheaper variety, but still a beautiful, extremely rich purple blue and gold.
I do have a request from the Rockgarden group of our Display Gardens to get
them some Katherine Hodgkin in the fall.

Tall beardeds always succumb eventually to Iris borer in my yard - except
for a small blue that someone gave me.  I had a pink siberian for 3 yrs that
never flowered so dug that out. The species flowered well one year but after
that expanded its clump but forgot to bloom.  Dutch aren't reliable around
here.  And I've tried Iris cycloglossa twice and failed both times.  Iris
tectorum is sort of a thug but no borers yet.  And someone sent me Iris
'Flight of the Butterflies' last year; can't recall what type it is; looking
forward to seeing it as the pictures were great.  Jesse? sent me a white
rebloomer that bloomed last fall - hopefully it won't get borers, it is
