A Smidge Obsessed

They are drought tolerant, in love with my sandy-gritty-alkaline soil, and easy with a major caveat: the gophers love them too.

White Hot and others.

Christina, when we lived in St. Louis, Marion was able to grow amazing irises. Chicago is less welcoming to them. Still, she was in awe of your photos. Wonderful.

Thanks, Terry and Marion! They're pretty addictive.

These are spectacular choices.

I used to purchase from a place up in Oregon. The most salivating catalogue would have me beside myself with all the choices. Regrettably I lost most of them along the way (many moves) where I'd try to home them till I found a permanent place. In the end, I had a blue Iris and a heritage iris I got from a demolished rock house in Claremont. They made it to my forever home. You may have seen the blue on Face Book

Beautiful photos of very gorgeous flowers. Nice variety of colors in your choices. I'd love to see more photos of your garden. Keep it up!
