Its Iris Time

It’s that time of year when I get some of my most beautiful blooms. My Tulips and Daffodils are done and the Cherries and Dogwood are spent. Now is the time for the Irises.

We have one of the nicest Iris farms and display gardens around and soon I will visit. Just not on Mothers Day weekend. Instead I will admire the Irises I have in my own yard. I have some who are descended from tubers I got 20 years ago. And some which I have collected over the years are more recent.

Just take a look at some of the ones I gave blooming now. I will get more and more each passing day. Enjoy.

  1. There are times like this viewing all your gorgeous irises that I regret removing most of mine. In an effort to cut down on perennials that need dividing and from an iris borer infestation one year, I have only a few left.
    Last year a friend gifted me a piece of her white iris ‘Immortality’ which will bloom spring and late summer so I figured it was worth having to add to my moon garden.
    Thanks for sharing your irises and linking to Mosaic Monday.

    1. Judith,

      Thanks for stopping. Yes, dividing irises can be a job. A couple of years ago my housemate dumped the giveaway divisions back into the replant pile. I have been trying to weed out the extras ever since. Lol.

  2. Oh I love Iris’s. Yours are beautiful. And you did a great job of photographing and editing. Your lovely post
    brought sweet memories to me. My parents had an Iris bed when I was growing up. They are so pretty.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Yael, you have some real beauties! Love each and every one! It has been raining here for three days. On Sat. between rainstorms a friend and I did a bit of Iris swapping. Generally I don’t move them this time of year, but because of the rain they look like they had been there all along. I added two peach varieties and a lovely burgundy and white. I had a gorgeous white one and pale blue at my previous home. Our son bought it and I keep meaning to go get a start. Thanks for sharing your beauties with SYC.

    1. Jann,
      Thanks and thanks for stopping. Having all the irises blooming is one of my favorite things each year. I have to divide mine this year, and fortunately have a taker for all the divisions.

  7. Your iris’s are stunning! I love them and they are one of my favorite flowers. I am afraid that mine did not do well this year do to our drought.
    A few had a some blooms but nothing like they normally do. I was so disappointed as I wait all year for them to bloom.
    I came over from Jann’s party and I love your blog since I am a gardener also, so I will be following you.
    Have a great weekend.

      So sorry to hear that your irises didn’t do well this year and about your drought. So many areas are being effected. Hopefully, the water conditions will I,prove for you in the coming year.
