Iris Bloom Report 05/23/10 part 2

Iris Bloom Report 05/23/10 part 2

Here are some nice blooms, but many show the effects of an early warmth followed by a frost and snow...

"Play With Fire" (Schreiner 1987) is really plum, despite the fact that it is listed as red.

Here is the given up for lost "Harvest of Memories." After 3 non-productive years in my garden it is blooming beautifully this year.

This unidentified "red" is much more a true red. It shows the effects of the late frost.

"Joan's Pleasure" is a new bloom this year from rhizomes I got late in the fall at a bargain price from Pleasant Valley.

"Everything Plus" is also a victim of the season.


  1. I was just given a nice clump of "Harvest of Memories" -- nice to see what a beautiful flower it will bear next spring!

  2. Clump is good! My bare root took 3 years to bloom... in my database it was a goner!
