Plant: Bearded iris (Iris germanica) |
Received two Iris in a swap from Gringo, but I mixed them up and didn’t know which was which until they bloomed. They finally did in May 2012. This was Tiger Honey, which I had originally planted near the far right side in the back near the Lavender. It became too crowded in that area. In early May 2012, I dug these out and planted half on each side of the steps. Only one small bloom after that trauma just before blooming.
