Iris investigations

While it was hot and humid and past the prime flowering time, the iris of Schreiner's were still quite spectacular. There were many blooms to view and consider for future purchase (the rhizomes aren't available until later in the year after the blooms are done and energy stored in the rhizome for the next year's blooming). Parasol in hand, I perambulated the public garden and came back with pictures of favorites.

oh my gosh! some of those are amazing. I really like the brown/red one. I wish there was some way to get together this weekend while I am up there. I'll be in Portland Thursday Friday and Saturday - will you be gone the whole time?

We have some of those deep red ones (2nd of your list) and they are beautiful. We also have a similar one that is very dark purple.
