TB: Spirit World

Blooming today, at the same time as it's child Silent Wings.  I really like 
iris, the name helps too, gives it a mystical quality.  We've had terrible 
weather here in SW MO.  It's been really dry, drought last summer too.  
Temps got up into the 90's whild stalks were just coming up.  The SDB iris 
hated the temps and folded fast.  The heat also caused flower eating bugs to 
come out early, usually they only ravage the late flowering iris here.  Some 
flowers are stunted, like when a stalk is cut, and later flowers bloom 
I don't know if it's the drought or the heat causing that?  A few like 
World and Silent Wings, are performing much better than others.  Early 
seedlings are starting to bloom.  Getting excited. :)
