Spring is finally here to stay now and the flowers are blooming for the season. This is the time for Iris to show their faces.
The Heather and Heath Hill. Although I've made a few changes to this in the last weeks I haven't gotten a current photo, this one was a couple weeks ago. I ordered more Heather from HeathsandHeathers.com
The front side that I changed last year. The only thing here that is not evergreen are the Iris and a small grouping of Hyacinth. The majority of the rest is Heuchera, Lavender and I just this last couple weeks added another ground cover, which there will be two to help fill up the space to the path. I figure by season's end this should be pretty much filled in. The closer side of the path is mainly groundcover waiting to fill in. Can't do much else there since it floods there from the neighbors.
Iris So Grand on left and Iris Pagan Dance on right. I bought Pagan Dance for my beautiful Yorkshire Terrier Pagan. I love these two together. All my other Iris back here were divided last year and didn't bloom this year. I'm hoping they'll do ok next year or I will be forced to move them out of this dry area.
Iris Study In Black and Iris Dusky Challenger. Really like both of these, but Dusky Challenger is such a beautiful deep purple that it really catches your eye.
Iris Stepping Out which is a beautiful bi-color bloom and Iris Cemetery is vintage.
The Ninebarks with Center Glow on left coming into bloom and the other 2 Diablo in bloom. Waiting for everything else to come in to bloom here. Hoping this rain continues that we've had, nice amounts of it without any yard flooding so far, but I'm sure I'm hoping for too much.
