Yet another of the Schreiner's irises
     As I said I would in a previous entry, I am posting pictures of some of the bearded irises I got from Schreiner's Iris Gardens last fall. As a photographer, I love these flowers! The first image above is of one called Sunrise Elegy, which was a bonus plant they sent me.  It just goes to show you that ones that might not appeal to you in a catalog turn out to be great.


  1. So gorgeous these are! I only wish that the plants were more interesting for the other 11 months of the year.

    1. How true! But the same can be said about many plants--peonies, lupines,oriental poppies,daffodils, etc. come to mind. In fact, I used to scorn these beauties, but I have come to love them for their spectacular flowers, deer resistance, and drought tolerance.
