Iris Heaven

Clarence

My irises survived all the late snows! All were planted last year; only one bloomed last year, and they say that's normal. Many varieties of perennial flowers do not bloom the first year.

Four more varieties have yet to bloom, but the stalks seem healthy and happy. So, more surprises next year??? I hope so!

    1. Thank you, Charlotte! I'm not sure yet which one is my favorite, and two of them didn't even bloom this year, so I won't know until next year. :)

    1. The late snow was not so fun to deal with while it was falling, Pat, but I think the plants must not have minded. Didn't lose a single one to that hard freeze!

    1. I'm sorry you missed them, too, Sue. Maybe next time you come, you can catch the new day lilies in full bloom!
