I definitely like the darker colors or bold colors.
I first like the pastel's, but with AZ sun they just
get to looking all the same, so I'm slowly working towards bright
oranges and yellows and deep blues, blacks etc.. But I still
like Ominious Stranger.
It's a keeper for me. But Poem of Esctasy, Champagne Elegance, and
definitely Fogbound. are slowly going to sales. Bright whites are
ok like Lark Ascending.
I do like broken color - if it really is a contrast, like in
But Tiger Honey ?, just not enough contrast in bright sun.

[SPAM][iris-photos] Pastel question
My taste in flowers tends toward the
bright, bold, flashy and interesting. It is very difficult for me
to walk through the seedling beds and actually see the softer tones,
selfs or yellows. When they are brought out of the seedling
beds they usually are very nice but something that might have been
passed up if I didn't force myself to double walk the
beds. Attached is a nice pastel SA out of Bride's Blush X
((Abiding Joy x Fogbound) X Social Blush), 11 buds, 38" tall, great
vigor. To me it is very pretty and elegant however I completely
missed it's maiden and second year bloom, this is it's third bloom
season and fortunately we caught it because it would have been destroyed
if not seen this year. Does anyone else have this same problem
and was wondering how many folks on the list prefer the lighter
shades or pastel colors in iris?
