The camera had been in the AC in the car, & I forgot to make sure it
wasn't fogged up in the humidity.
OXMOOR HILLS blooming last week. Definitely heat tolerant.
Plants in town are in a wonderful location - well drained, elevated clay
soil, good air circulation, early morning sun, so no dew problems,
regular rain as storms go up the river nearby, more stable temperature
thanks to all the concrete. Plants look absolutely phenomenal compared
to here in the 'vale', just 5 or so miles away. No bloom this spring
because grounds crew kept mowing them flush with the ground, starting
last summer, a few weeks after they were planted. Finally got them to
quit during bloom season, too late for this year.
Donated to the local garden club by East TN Iris Soc. Several more
rebloomers in the bunch.
