We're just coming to the end of our bloom season
some votes from my garden, as awarded by me.
*Plant Of The Year* -
Vienna Waltz - absolutely perfect in every way.
Growth, health, increase,
branching, form and fertile too.
*Season Whopper-Stopper* - For huge
plants, stems, bud count etc my
award goes to Revere. A stem of it took
out the people's choice award at
our iris show.
*Surprise Of The
Year* - Shiver Of Gold - The surprise was that my
floret it took out Grand
Champion at the SA Iris Show. The surprising
part was that it opened
beautifully and stayed that way all weekend. In
the garden it tends to
open then flop right open. It has lovely wide
form and colour, but is so
soft it's stds can't seem to stay upright in
wind or sun.
Waltz also took out Champion TB.)
*Fertility Award* goes to Shadows Of
Night - Every pod set on it, and
every time I used the pollen it seemed to
take also. All I hope now is
that it gives nice seedlings.
