Thank you all for the great pictures and ideas for oranges. Griff, I
am looking for a little darker orange, but I will start with what ever I can
produce right now. I bought orange impact and planted it about 3 weeks
ago. The pictures look promising, but won't know how it will fare here
until it sets it's roots and starts to show off! So I am crossing my
fingers on that one. I am off to search for Wild West
Wind and Feu-Du-Ciel and
Gratuity. I think McKellar's is a little light for me. I really
appreciate all the insite from everyone. You are all a world of
information! Have a great night
Linda -- For
a dark orange, I'd recommend WILD WEST WIND.
Here's a photo of it in my garden, and you can see another at Dave's Garden
It's not described as an orange by Lowell, its hybridizer, but that's the
way it appears to my eye. It's a great growing plant, sturdy.
floriferous and a standout. If you want a brighter orange, there are
some, but I won't have my own photos and growth report until next
year. -- Griff

Subject: [iris-photos] Need advice on
an orange iris and a pic if possible
First off, I am looking for a picture of Unyoro, Too Too Ripe, and Wild
Frontier if anyone has them, I would greatly appreciate it.
Second, I am in search of a good solid growth orange iris. I love
the color of TN Vol, which bloomed lovely this year, but the foliage and
growth rate of the plant habit is extremely puny. I have it growing in
2 different places where other iris are thriving and it just seems to be
slow and small. I have Voltage, which is a little better in growth,
but the color is a little to gold for what I am looking for. Any
suggestions? Thanks for any help that you have.
