Re: Iris companions

From: moonsage@direct.ca

The last house we lived in had some nice Iris beds with marigolds,
calendula and blue flax growing amongst them. After our first summer
there I discovered that all the other flowers were self sown, and they
kept on being there for years. The Irises all did very well with that
arrangement.this was in a Zone 6A in Central BC, Canada

At our new home, this is our first summer here, the Irises are in beds a
the top of a rock wall, and are surrounded by herbs, russian sage and
alyssum. They all flowered and did well. I moved out a very tall TB
because of wind damage but all the rest I have left where they are
because they did so well. Of course I added a few others to the
bed...including some that I brought from our last home and some lovely
IB's from Chuck Chapman. (Xanthipe's Halo, Bravo, Moss Bay, to name a
few.) He gave me two extras that I'm waiting to see next year....Cream
Pixie and Helga's Hat.

Where the weather is still sensational, the Stella D'oros are still
blooming, so are all the roses!! Zone 5, BC
