Hi Jim and all
I enclose a picture of Iris chamaeiris , it is actually blooming outside
now, for the second time, the reason is the very warm weather we have had during
the autumn and early winter , until now there have been no frost at all, the
temp has for a long time steady around 8-10C/46-50F, not only the iris are
growing to fast but also other bulbous plants as well.
I have some junoiris way above ground now, the first species
I.rosenbachiana will most likely bloom in January, which is 1-2 months earlier
The wet and warm weather is however useful for the boxes of seed from TB
crosses, I got 200+ seedpods this year and now there are reasonably good
germination, with aprx 100 seedlings by now, also the seeds from arilcrosses is
germinating even better than those from TB.
