I shared this iris a few days before with its standards smashed down from the rain. These standards are a little better but they seem in bad form from the last nights rain. I am hoping that next year this iris will turn into a taller stemmed iris
The peonies that I moved from the farm three years ago are all slower bloomers than my other plants. I think out of the four of them that three are red peonies.
One of these similiar kinds of iris that I had was an almost pure cream to white iris. The top standards were translucent white with cream colored falls. I lost that iris and will be keeping my eyes our for it to add to my collection again.
I will finish by sharing this photo of a successful story of a change in the garden location. This iris bloomed in an area each year with short stalks and seemed not to be robust. I moved it last year and I have this very tall stem with these buds on them. I left some of it in the old location and that plant is going to be moved now for sure.
We ran errands this morning and this afternoon I have lots of small jobs to do. I hope all have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by at my blog today.
