Impatient

Heheh it's so tiny. This was when it was first planted. I never got around to taking pictures a the end of the season, 'cause I was preggers and so sick ehhehe. I was talking several shots of my other pots, and have some when they were full, but again, not at the end of the summer.

Is that the name of this iris?" Border Iris ( the dark burgundy colored one)

Thanks

Ginseng I have been trying to find the name of that iris but it is still buried under lots of snow! The Border Bearded designation is a class of iris of the same size. I know I did get the iris from Chuck Chapman Iris catalog years ago. Greg

Man, those irises are soooo much more exciting than the plain purple ones!

This is one of my favorite pelagorium varieties " Indian Dune". I grow it for the leaf colors not so much for the flowers
