Anybody willing to recommend a source for Louisiana irises for southern
Ohio? My sister has a poorly drained, wet area with partial shade that
seems like it might be worth experimenting with LAs, but I don't know
how they would do that far north.
My LAs are blooming like mad this year. The two that are doing the best
are the surviving unnamed 2 of 3 ordered from a bulk mail order cheapo
collection several years ago and finally moved from the gravel garden to
the swamp last year. I don't know how they managed to survive at all in
the gravel, but they seem very happy to be in a more suitable location!
One is an enormous blue violet with showy creamy signals, the other a
fuller petaled rusty-rose bitone with showy yellow-gold signals and dark
veins. Both are absolutely gorgeous.
Christy Hensler's March TB transplants still have a few blooms and there
is actually a pod or two from ?BREAKERS x COLETTE THURILLET. Children
will be part of the MIRACLE BABIES series : )
