Maybe Louisa’s Song is one of those Southern irises I mentioned the other day.  It’s doing well here.  I planted it two years ago.  It now has nine fans.  I just went out in the heat to count them.  It only bloomed one stalk a year though.  It was a nice stalk.  I don’t remember how many buds, not many I think.


I tried many crosses with it.  The only one that took was on one of my seedlings that I didn’t even keep.  I have the little ones though.  They will start to bloom next year.

I've had a terrible time with this one.  Got it last year.  It almost died in the pot.  It was the only one of about 50 that didn't put on roots while in the pot.  Then this spring all foliage dies.  A little later two small fans started showing.  With everything else growing well in the same bed I'm a bit frustrated. 


Louisa's Song is in the same bed.  Got it with one increase in fall of 2004.  It bloomed in 2005.  Stalk was 12 inches tall with 3 blooms.  Moved it into the new bed last fall in hopes it would do better. . . ??  Just checked it this week!  One really pretty and healthy looking fan.  Looks like the same one I moved last fall??  That's all folks.  Should I get a belt and beat it?  <vbg>  They say it works for trees! 


If you don't cross them, you'll won't have to plant them! Bah! Humbug!! Hot summer!
