Morning Loic and all.
I've had Autumn Jester, Blueberry Tart, Forever
Blue, What Again, and Grape Cordial for several years. What Again did
rebloom here in its very first year, but hasn't since. Autumn Jester,
Blueberry Tart and Forever Blue rebloom here in Sept.
Autumn Jester reblooms without needing to be
moved. Each year, I pull a piece off the back of both Forever Blue and
Blueberry Tart in spring, plant immediately and both
rebloom, sometimes the same year. Forever Blue often reblooms in both
July and Sept. I'll have to try that with other potential rebloomers that
I have. As you can well imagine, I now have at least 7 clumps of FB and BT
all over my garden.
Double Your Fun is just new last year, but it's
As of yesterday's count, there's 244 different iris
now blooming in my garden, mostly still SDB's and MDB's, many with 2
clumps. It's a wonderful sight, even in all the rain we've been having
here over the last 10 days or so.

Concertina, with very poor results!
Nevertheless, i got one pod last year with
Eternal Bliss' pollen, and i've got one pod now, with Forever
Thanks so much for all these pictures,
the SDBs are long gone here , (now it's the last week for the TBs) and
seeing your pictures confirms my preference for the smaller ones , among which
the IBs are my favorites!
1500 seedlings are replanted so far,
still 500 to go.
The rain has prevented me from digging
enough beds, hope next year i'll be wiser and have everything ready
600 pods are proudly showing off; now
most flowers are gone, it looks like a fiels of
Thanks again for all your
