Re: Good older pinks. I grew Scaparelli (I know this
isn't spelled right but can't think of it) when I
lived in upstate NY. Older, quite tailored form but
grew like a weed and had gorgeous color. It caused
traffic jams when in full bloom. I think Iris City
Gardens in TN carries it.
As to fragrance, it's hard to remember what smells
best but what comes to mind is Blue Luster which
smells great in my garden and Schreiner's includes it
in a list of fragrant irises in their catalogue. I
also love Triple Whammy 'cause it smells like the
lemon custard ice cream we used to get when I was a
Carol in the now quite hot TX 'Hill Country'. Summer
is definitely here! (zone 8b)
OOps! almost forgot. Have been without my computer
for a # of weeks. Hard drive crashed and I lost a lot
of information. At least three people contacted me
from this group and suggested that we trade. Could
you please contact me again?
