I was talking to a lady who is a member of an iris society. She asked the names of my irises. I don't seem to pay attention to what their names are even if I buy them and they are labeled. This one is a strong gold color and I got it from Kelly.
This one is a lovely plum color that I got from Kelly.
But I have been anxiously waiting for this one to open. It was in a location where I thought I knew what it was going to be. I'd planted the ones that I call rust with some that I call salmon. But I didn't plant this one. I didn't have one like it. This flower bed is the second to last that I've started. A bunch of them in this bed are from Lydia. They came unlabeled in a WalMart bag. But this corner had the two colors that I thought would look excellent with a Japanese Maple. It was a very welcome surprise.
This is what I was expecting.
I particularly like how this one looks with a backdrop of lavender. I think it is from Leigh. I moved it from the Rose Hill bed.
