Re: Aaaagh!! Space Agers!!!

You seem to have the same idea I had...
Everytime I saw a picture of Thornbird, Conjuration, or Sky Hooks, they looked different.  I have not really been impressed with the pictures of Thornbird that I have seen, but some of my friends that grew it last year said they LOVED it when it bloomed for them.
So I am growing these to see for myself how they look, like you are.  Mine however, will not bloom for another 5 months or so since I am north of the equator. 
I think flounces on Sky Hooks would look interesting.  The only pictures I have seen of it displayed horns.  We shall see what they do in my arid desert temperature.

Subject: [iris-talk] Aaaagh!! Space Agers!!!

Howdy All,
     Just though I'd pass on to you some lovely space agers that are
flowering in my garden now... all for the first time.

     Eqyptian (Nice)
     Conjuration (WOW!!!!!)
     Skyhooks (interesting colour.... love the flounces)

     And I should get to see the infamous Thornbird within the next couple
of days.  I look forward to forming my own opinions on that one given the
"arguements" on the list in the past.  I wonder what form mine will take
this year.... I wonder what my potting mix will make it do.  Will be
interesting to see in the future when it is in the ground.

     So many others in flower now that I'm not going to start listing them.
Particularly love Six Pack, Acoma, Queen of Elegance, Knighted, Cheerful
One, Epicenter (just finished).... and I'll stop there.

     All the best from Down Under.
