The iris might be my favorite flower! I just love the time of year when most of them bloom. I still have a few that haven't burst into bloom, but there are quite a few in full bloom.
They are easy to grow, send out new tubers every year, and some are even fragrant!
This one is not just delicate and beautiful, but also fragrant!
This dark purple has multiple blooms per stalk.
When I originally selected these, they all had names - unfortunately, I didn't keep track of the names.
These are from my Mom's original iris garden.
This one is tiny - about half the size of most iris.
Not open yet - but nearly black and huge - one of my favorites!
