They are gorgeous! I wish i could get flowers like that to grow..but for some reason, i seem to kill them all off..except for roses…and i don’t like roses. When we moved here, the previous owners had multiple rose bushes (read HUNDREDS). I dug them up and succeeded in getting rid of all but three. THEY WILL NOT DIE. I have poured gasoline, vinegar, salt, chopped them down, dug them up..and they still come back.
SO…they stay. I figure they have earned the right to live here now.
Those are stunning.
I should try to grow some of these types of irises. I bought the other skinny kind and the slugs totally demolish them. I was told slugs don’t even like irises, but the slugs in MY yard do.
