Re: CULT:Bloom Report & Question

Some of the early blooming daylilies perform with the late blooming irises. I 
particularly like bright yaller (yellow for non-Southerners) daylilies with 
the late blooming blacks, mauves, and blues and purples. Some verbena blooms 
well through the iris season. Pinstamen (sp?) does well too. Dianthus does 
the whole iris bloom season with the contrast in form and size creating 
drama. Roses if you can stand the work. Herbal sage fits nice with bloom as 
does oregano foliage. Creeping and native phlox (grand compatible fragrance). 
Sweet William. Dandelions! Love that yaller and absolutely bullet proof. 
Tradascanthia (spider wort or widows tears if you prefer) in white blue and 
mauves. Mostly lazy and don't like to garden so prefer perennials. Make 
exception for the best annual of all here, poppies! A great excuse not to 
weed, ask nothing of you and eliminate the need but not the craving for a 
true red iris.

Smiles to you,
