Iris reticulata


Iris reticulata (Iris reticulata)

A clump open in the back garden - they could be 'Harmony', but they look bluer to me, so they might be just 'Iris reticulata' with no name.

I know they don't last that long, but they seem to signal that spring is on its way...:-)))

I think Sprintz would be very apt for your speed around the garden, planting and weeding as you go, LOL.

20 Feb, 2010

 

True.....good thinking, Wagger! ;-)

My iris are swelling up ready to burst. They don't last very long in flower but they are so pretty.

25 Feb, 2010

 

No, Linda - they don't last long, but I still love to see them. it sounds as though you agree! :-)

I've got the very light blue ones and dark mauve. I'm a useless gardener as far as names go for plants. I just buy them because I like them........

25 Feb, 2010

 

My new tiny pots are called 'Cantab' and 'Springtime'. They're just about to open, so I'll take their pictures when they do. You might recognise yours from a photo, mightn't you!
