Re: gotta buy

Dian, your soil and climate sound like mine here in southern Arizona.  I took notes on what did well for you.  
My best iris last  year was Ring Around Rosie, Ernst, 2000.  It is more beautiful than any of its pictures including mine, ruffled white flowers edged yellow, with falls dotted burgundy, dancing on strong stalks above dark green fans.  This fall I noticed that it was overcrowded and had to dig it.  The first year clump yielded 10 big, healthy rhizomes.  I planted most of them in Sept. and each one looks as though it's going to do it again.  It is pollen fertile.  It set two purple tinted pods.  One contained nothing.  The other only 5 small seeds.  
Most beautiful, I thought was April Jewel, Lauer, '99, a striking blend of pink and orange.
Another favorite is Penny Lane, Lauer, '99, though I usually don't care for orange.  It has exquisite form and is very showy.
