I Love Iris!

Awhile back I posted some pictures of a glorious new bright yellow iris we got from Nanna’s Garden in Charleston, Arkansas. I love this time of the year because we’re rich in iris! The deep purple iris is pretty well gone, only to be replaced by pale yellow iris and this lavender color.

 

My husband insists these are WHITE. Then, when we talk about it, he says these are white compared to the bright yellow new ones we have…

 

This is a nice blue iris blooming in the iris bed we made for the new ones from Nanna’s Garden.

 

This is the planter for the new iris. My plan is to thin these out, this year or next, to eventually have these all over the yard.

 

These are more of the bright yellow ones, plus some yellow with rust colored centers, plus a peek at some medium purple ones in the center of the picture.

 

These pale yellow iris are all over the yard now. We had so many at one point that, after no one wanted iris, I simply threw down the hill off the edge of the civilized part of the yard. To my amazement, many of them grew!

 

These are the ones I threw off the edge of the part of the yard we mow. (Molly is checking out a lizard as I took this picture.)
