Val... this blue one is a real strong grower. I only bought this one last year as a small, single branched rhizome, and in 12 months it has produced multiple branches and covers an area 50cm square and has about 4 strong flower stalks. Make sure you leave some room in your garden for this one as I'll be able to send you a piece soon Thumbsup

Most of the early ones are finished. I still have some that haven't budded, and maybe they won't till next year. I have another order from Impressive Irises arriving next week!

Yep... my early ones are done... waiting for a few more that I too am thinking may not till next year now... early days yet. It is interesting to note, Val, that you and I seem to be closer together in timing of our iris flowers than we are with our rose flowering. We seem to be a good month or more behind you guys with our roses but seem more in-synch with the iris. Anyone know the best time to move bearded iris?

I was told that after they've finished flowering is OK to move them Simon. That was from a pot to a bed, maybe not from a bed to elsewhere.

Best time is in summer( and as O40 says after flowering) so they have the autumn to reestablish themselves for next year.

Oh wow! I never knew that iris can rebloom...awesome!!!

Nothing betters a garden of roses & iris (and perhaps just a few other choice plants) IMO!

Early start to the iris season this year... got lots of flowers coming on and even a few flowers out already. I'll have to grab a photo of the two dwarf iris I have out already... growing really strongly already too... this spring is shaping up to be a rippa!!! I've even got iris about to start flowering in pots Shocked

Hi Simon,
Yes this season looks very promising here too. I've got one in bloom and several fat buds both in pots and in the ground.

Hi,
my irises are only just beginning to flower. There isn't any colour showing yet. Yours are a bit ahead of mine. Isn't it a lovely time of year?

Yes, Barbara, Spring is a great season! Something new in the garden every day. Smile
Ozrose, it's difficult to keep them at the right depth isn't it? Too low and they rot in wet soil or don't flower well. Too high and the rhizome scorches in the sun. Exclamation

Don't know much about them Val , only that I like them. Bought a couple of doz. different ones at the Iris nursery out the otherside of Collie a couple of years ago . I had flowers after I planted them but not much since. Now I know why. Embarassed

First out are my dwarf beardies... flowers not more than about 6-7cm across on 20cm tall plants:

'Canadian Kisses'

''Mighty Mouse'

'Storm Song'

'Storm Song' was bought as a median bearded iris. I stays really small here, however, and has excellent foliage as well as very rapid increase.

Simon, where did you purchase them if you don't mind telling, I reckon "Mighty Mouse" is stunning.
Great to see you back Val, we have missed you. Thumbsup
