RE: Three striking irises

It's tough to pick only three, but here goes:  Syncopation, Peach
Picotee, Night Ruler.  Ask me another day and it might be a different
set of three.

For SDBs, I pick What Again, Sea Urchin and Tu Tu Turquoise.

For IBs, Pink Pele, Dark Waters, and Az Ap.

For Siberians, Chilled Wine and Helicopter.

		    Oh...I see.  I personally would rather take a
"striking on striking"
		approach.  ("striking" being  irises such as AIR UP
		and RAKU BLAZE)  I'm sure there are others so please let
me know.  Why
		don't we take a poll?  You write and tell me the 3 most
striking irises
		that are in your garden right now. (that have bloomed,
not those you've
		just planted.)  And please change the subject line to
"Striking irises"
		or something like that.
		No jokes about the UPS strike or irises that strike when
you're not
		looking, please.
