Here's one of my iris beds, some are still in pots but I'll wait till they've flowered before I plant them out. Lots of buds!

Val the top one looks like a member of the Japonica family, is it variegated ?

There are some tiny Japonicas in the front of the bed, yes they are variegated. There's a pic earlier in this thread.

That's a lovely beardie Val. I noticed I have some about to bloom here too:

This one is Coral Point... a coral pink colour:

They are lovely strong plants Simon. It's exciting waiting for the buds to open. Gaelic Jig will be my next one, it's been teasing me all day with its half open petals.

Thats a nice iris, Val.
I like the way the standards hold together in that crown shape, while the falls overlap. Lovely colours too.

We had a terrible storm here yesterday and I have now staked all the flower stems of my Irises, one or two got a bit of a lean to them.
I got 8 new irises from Impressive irises, 2 of them were bonus plants. I find their prices very good.

Great Iries photos, everyone !
On Saturday I visited a small Iris farm
and I have asked them to hold me 26 different Iries for me.
They are still only $5. each . The lady had 3 photo albums of
Iries to look at, as they were't out just yet.

What a simply gorgeous colour Simon! It looks good enough to eat Very Happy I love the shade of the beards too - they complement the petals.

I have sent another order to Impressive irises Embarassed
Theirs are such value for money. The $5 ones I got they only charged me $4 each and 2 bonuses. They are having a clearance sale at the moment - any 10 from a certain group for $20. I couldn't resist! The rest of their range is very competitively priced too.
This weekend is the first one of Tempo Two's open day weekends at Pearcedale in Vic. I will of course be going Embarassed I'm going to look for some more little Pacific Coast Irises.
PS. Don't tell Carole she will shoot me OMG!!!

This morning's gift, but the labels got mixed up and I don't know it's name. It's a beauty.

Love the colours in that one, Val. You can never have too many iris, or too many roses. Razz

Hey Val... I was thinking the one on the left doens't look much like a Pacific Coast Iris! It looks like a beardie... there is a median beardie called 'Making Eyes' that looksidentical to this:

I know I answered this post earlier!! Must have forgotten to hit the "Send" button.
Yes Simon, you're right! I got this one from the GA expo, and it wasn't labelled as Pacific Coast Iris, I just assumed it was! It was called "Dark Eyes" by the seller. It's slightly bigger than the other PCIs too. Guess I'll have to re-house it!
Thanks,
Val

Lovely Val... 'Pond Lily' is a really lovely colour combination!

Out here today:

'Coral Point'... Still flowering but flowers seem less vividly coloured than in the first photos.

Lovely, Simon. Pebbles fresh is such a vibrant colour. It will be interesting to see the results of the cross pollination.
