but nevertheless most welcome!!

    Very pretty! The old historics are usually the first to bloom for me as well. I don't have any of the smaller dwarf bearded, nor do I grow the "bulb iris" which can bloom earlier. One thing about those older varieties, they are tough as nails and not nearly as finicky as some of the hybrids.

      ThankĀ  you. It is actually prettier than it looks here. The flower is large...just no ruffles. It usually grows tall too. (Lots of the heirlooms are shorter).

      Looks as though I may have several of them scattered around. The bud is easy to recognize since it has a sharp peak. I do hope my large yellow and orange ones come back. I haven't seen either of them in a long time. I have never had my colors grouped...just jumbled up together. lol
