Hi Jean,

It's simple, I cheat.  Not really, I love Barry Blyth's 
irises so much that I ordered some the last two winters 
 from him.  They are quite confused at the change in 
hemisphere and decide it must be time to bloom sooner than 
they would in Australia (their season is September.)

It does take awhile to acclimate them to Nebraska.  Thanks 
goodness some kind person warned me that their first bloom 
is not typical.  I would have been pretty disappointed for 
no reason.

The first July they have shorter stalks, smaller blooms and 
low bud count.  Then the next spring they are more adjusted 
and bloom more closely to what their potential is.

This July bloom is doing nothing to help with this 
addiction though.  You have to keep ordering year after 
year to get the July bloom.  Guess I'll just have to suffer 
through it and keep on ordering.
