We're having the same problem here in Holland.
It's so hot, the flowers open then burn out in a day.
Feels like they are turning into hemerocalles!
Just don't know where to daub, have to be so quick : one minute it's right there, you think it can wait a bit, so you pollinate a couple of cute ones closer to you, when you finally get there, it's already unwilling, dry, agonising...
It hasn't rain in a month and we have to water every two days to maintain things fresh enough to survive.
The seed pots have to be watered everyday.
The leaves on the trees have just popped out but it feels like the middle of august, lawns are turning yellow.
Enough with the weather report!
Thanks for posting Litle Rabbit, with four stalks it sure is a winner!

Subject: [iris-photos] CULT: Red Rabbit

Here is Don Spoon's RED RABBIT ( R. 2002), Sdlg. 98-37A. SDB, 10" (25 cm), EM. blooming today.  The photo doesn't quite capture the deep wine red, almost purplish color of this beauty.  Planted here last fall, it is putting up four bloom stalks, of which three are blooming and holding their own against the 85 degree temperature that has jumped on us out of the protracted upper-50s days.  Most of the rest of the SDBs aren't enjoying the change at all.  The high temp accelerates the bloom and shortens individual bloom time.  Keeps the hybridizer hopping, even if the Red Rabbit isn't.  --  Griff
