I was fortunate enough to inherit a pretty 2 tone purple iris that was growing in the yard when we bought our old house 20 years ago. So I have transplanted and divided it up so much it is all over my garden and neighborhood.
Here's a nice photo of a different shade of purple bearded iris that is a deeper richer color with more of a plum.
When the bearded Irises are just about finished the Siberian Irises start blooming.
The Siberians are so prolific & happy nestled in and around the pond I need to divide them every few years to keep them blooming well. I probably should've turned the pond on before taking this photo!
I'm always on the lookout to collect different colors of Iris so if you have any to trade, email me!!!
Next up to bloom will be the Japanese Iris. Mine are situated in a spot that has gotten crowded and is rather shady as of late. I need to dig them up and divide them, too.
Check back later to see what is blooming next in my garden.
