Finally, a Siberian bloom!
I have ONE Siberian blooming - INDY - which was sold to me two years
ago as ILLINI ENCORE.....
I wondered why it was so short and so `early' - yes, up here June 13th
is early for Siberians....
I raced out as soon as I got up when I saw a bloom....looked like
red-violet from my bedroom window and it was ....nice blue lines
on the falls and looks wonderful BUT I planted this Siberian
next to LADY VANESSA which I wouldn't have done if I knew it was
So important to have the correct I.D. on our iris....but everyone
makes mistakes and I think it looks great....and I'm not moving
it next year (as I considered doing).
No iris to take down to MASS for me - lots of buds tho'....not
enuf' promising buds...too early.
