  • Subject: [PHOTO] [iris-photos] ZWANENBURG
  • From: "Donald Eaves" <donald@eastland.net>

OB type AB, historic.  Denis '12.  The last entry on my iris list, it's
always the first to bloom.  The only AB I grow that qualifies as a weed.
Interesting rather than beautiful, as the first thing to bloom it's always
welcome.  It blooms prodigiously and reliably every year.  I tried to
determine what the name might mean.  I thought it might be 'swan in the
city', but near as I can figure out that wasn't quite accurate.  If it were
zwaanenburg then it could be swan at the mountain or something like that.
In any case, for iris-photos, it will be my swan song for posting for a
while.  As the bloom season progresses north of my location, I will enjoy
those photos other people post.  My special interest is growing arilbreds
though I still grow more TBs.  Most of the TBs  here are grown by others and
I expect they will get better representation in the photos than mine. Those
TBs I thought less common I've already posted.  Thanks to everyone for all
the nice comments I've received both on the group and privately.
