Re: BULB: Bulbous iris


Re DI have you tried "Royal Yellow" a bright gold that regulary has 4 buds
per stem cf the usual 2. It's mid to late. My foaorite colour is Orange
Beauty, but it's a small plant and Carmen, purplish white.

My Reticlata aren't flowering yet. Have only 3 varieties. How many do you
have. Maybe we could swap

>Howdy Tom,
>Bulbous iris do well here.  I have numerous types of I. reticulata
>the I. danfordiae are a bit dodgy (to say the least).  Also the Iris
>histrioides crosses are just as good as the I. reticulatas.
>I love the I. reticulatas. They are little gems every year.  They're
>in flower right now and always bring a smile whenever I go out in the
>back yard.  Still more coming into bud though so they'll be around
>a while yet.
>Iris bucharica has now survived 2 years, but no flowers either
>season.  I'm now experimenting with different conditions to see if I
>can get one of the two pots into flower.  I want to try more of the
>Junos but other than I. bucharica they aren't freely available here
>far as I can find out.
>Dutch iris do REALLY well here and multiply like crazy (depending on
>the variety).  I also have Iris xiphium (I think) and I tingitana
>which seems to be going OK though I've only had it for a few months.
>Personally I think the Dutch irises are wonderful in large clumps in
>the garden.  We have "Apollo" in blumps that produce 30 of more
>inflorescences each year.  They've done so well that I'm putting more
>colours out around the garden to see how they do.  My favourite dutch
>is probably "Casablanca" which is the cleanest white I've come across
>Well that pretty well covers Bulbous irises here.  I'm always
>interested in getting more types as I like a large variety of iris
>Paul Tyerman
>Canberra, Australia
>USDA Zone equiv - Zone 8(ish)
>Here's a non-TB question for you:  which bulbous irises do you grow?
>have often wondered why bulbous irises have languished for all these
>I grow the standards that are commonly available, such as I.
>and I. danfordii.  [By the way, how persistent is I. danfordii in
>of the woods?]
