Iris reticulata 2019
« on: January 03, 2019, 03:15:19 PM »
These seem a bit early but Avery nice surprise. Frozen solid but iris  reticulata ‘happiness’ and then ‘Mars Landing’.

Some years the bulbs split into smithereens but these look ok to me.

Beautiful photos, Steve.  I can't compete.

Iris 'Sunshine'  I spotted it showing a bit of yellow in the frame and thought I'll take you into the greenhouse tomorrow but a slug got there before me.  I caught it in the act so it is no more.

Iris 'Reine Immaculee'



Iris 'Sunshine' 
Spot the blue bud hiding there



The interloper.  Looks like one of Alan McMurtrie's.  Not sure I like the very spotty ones.

I think the stray blue Iris could be 'Splish Splash'
I was looking for Alan McMurtrie's website but it seems to have disappeared.

Thanks, Maggi.  That link is working fine but the one I've been using still isn't working for me.  It looks the same.

Another disappointment.  I thought I planted 5 bulbs of Iris 'Mars Landing'  One 'mars Landing' and 4 blue ones ? Iris 'Splish-Splash'
