My first iris opened today...good ole Katherine Hodgkin...several other reticulata are poking through.
That's nice! She is one of the most reliable irises here.I could see the color of some other cultivar when I left, a yellow one.Here are the yellow bunch today. Think it is Iris danfordiae.
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
Yes, it is I. danfordiae...I've grown it but it only grows as an annual around here...I've never managed to get to to rebloom.
St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada
1800 mm precipitation per year
Yes, those are first year. Here they usually last two-three years but someone told they like deep planting. So I tried to plant deeper this time.
Here is the clump of 'Katherine Hodgkin' today along with the first I. reticulata 'Harmony'
