Can't imagine having to protect irises from the sun in my little part of the world !
It sometimes even looks like i'd better plant rice here instead of irises !
Thanks Francelle to open my understandind of other people's problems...
This is again a proof ( as if we would still need any ) of the role this groop can play!
And even if i envy the size of your seedlings, i can imagine not having real seasons must be quite tiring with an non stop growth of weeds!
But here also, even with a bit of frost, weeds are always here to keep you alert!
I'll be crawling on my kees all weekend!

Subject: [iris-photos] HYB: New seedlings under cover

Here are the three rows that I planted this winter.  The one on the right was planted Dec. 9.  I had to take the cover off to remove weeds.  I have just a little better than 50% germination in it now, and I am hoping that there are more to come.  As usual there is great difference in the germination of different crosses.  I am very disappointed in Wearing Rubies X Pink Champagne.  Though both of these are vigorous irises in my garden, only seven of thirty seeds are up, and they look very small and weak.  The Cloud Reflection babies seem large and vigorous.  Only the largest are visible in this picture.  They are 2 ½ inches high and have three leaves.

The white poles are for holding up a six foot high shade screen that I will roll out to protect them when the temperature goes to 110+ degrees.
