Linda gave me two good sized fans of her large yellow-orange reblooming Iris. She thinks it is either “Olympic Challenge” from Michigan Bulb or “Disco Music” from Breck’s. This was planted on Sept 1, 2008 in Welcome to the side of the Rhododendron. This photo is from Linda’s garden.
This planting is in the Welcome garden.
