Blatant has produced a few stalks and soon the flowers will be appearing. I believe this iris has always bloomed first, early blooming I would say.
The iris plants are looking healthy and are awaiting warm weather to enhance their growth. Although there are no signs of stalks it will not be long before they appear.
This is the first of many posts for the 2019 season. Enjoy Spring!
It is time to begin preparing to take care of our customers iris orders. Customers who ordered irises have their names written on a bag so that we can place their irises in them.
Although we will not begin digging iris till July 23 we have to have our ducks in order to make sure this process runs smoothly, and after all these years of filling orders we've go it down.
The iris show season has come to an end. You can still order iris by color by calling JoAnn or going to the website and emailing her. Happy Gardening. We enjoyed meeting and talking with you. Thanks for a fun and awesome season.
As you can see by this photo the mid to late blooming iris are still blooming. You can also see I am removing the stalks that no longer have blossoms on them, this serves two purposes. One is to prevent seed pods from opening and secondly to beautify the garden. The viewing garden remains open 7 days a week from 9:00-6:00 so stop by to see these iris in bloom.
Iris garden is in full bloom! During blooming season we are open 7 days a week from 9:00-600. We will also be open Memorial day as well as all weekend. Come out to the garden to enjoy their beauty, it is gorgeous!
A good way to extend your iris blooming season is to have early bloomers, mid bloomers and late bloomers. The early blooming iris are still blooming and the mid blooming iris are now starting to bloom.
The attached photo of Exotic Star is a good example of a mid blooming iris.
We are open today from 9:00-6:00 so if you want to bring your mother to the garden to purchase starts of iris to be planted later in July or to just walk the garden to view their beauty come on out. Spend time with mom at JoAnn's iris garden, that is sure to make her happy!
This is the craziest blooming season. Here it is May 7th and we only have six iris blooming. I guess mother nature is playing with us. If you want early blooming iris in your flower beds, like this iris named Blatant, now is the time to visit the garden.
