Pansy...your tree is lovely. I planted a couple at my other house, but we moved before they really came into their own. Thanks for sharing.

I love irises, but I can only grow the really hardy ones. One year, I bought about seven specialty bearded irises (Supreme Sultan being one of them), and not one overwintered.
Here are a couple that do manage to live in my garden (one Siberian and one bearded):

Koot, my guess for your mystery plant is darmera peltata.

Love the I's with all those gorgeous irises.
Now here is an I that might be seen more under the M's, but I am going to use it here.
Ipomoea purpurea Heavenly Blue

I dithered over irises or impatiens and finally decided with this container of impatiens that behaved so nicely all summer long on my sitting area.

Like Sharon, I also have iberis and after seeing hers with the fern leaf peony, I know where I will be transplanting some iberis this spring.

Beautiful Iris. I really like them but they always become
infested with that horrid little borer so I will just enjoy all
of yours.

I will definitely be looking for Katherine iris this year!
Donna.....maybe you'd have better luck with some already growing in a cold climate..give me a holler in July if you'd like to try a few. have some that will require thinning. I'll take pics this spring so I can show you what I have.

Koot, your unknown looked very familiar to me. I saw a picture of it in the Dominion Seed catalogue. It is Astilboides Tabularis

Yup that is what it is "Thanks"
Wow I sure like the dwarf iris, I might look for some!!

Here are my "I" s...an Ivy to go with Sharon's Ilex (Holly) so we can all sing that dear old Christmas carol...and one of my pretty Irises.

I love the black, or black/dark blue irises shown in this soup...also am quite mad about that peach one, I think of Kat's...
