I have several varieties of Iris. Some short and bloom early. Some medium and bloom next. Finally the really tall ones that bloom later.
I wish I had pictures of them all. I am hoping that they will come back this year. So far, I have lots of green, pointy leaves poking up, signalling to me that they are indeed back.
I just looked up information on the Iris and was surprised to see that it is named after a Greek goddess who rode magical rainbows. I didn’t know there was one!!
Irises are a desirable perennial as they grow anywhere. Whatever kind of soil you have they will grow nicely in. Sunny, partly sunny they don’t mind either. I enjoy them because I can put them anywhere and they will come up nicely. Just don’t plant their rhizomes too deep, they like a shallow spot with their rhizomes showing.
This is another one that I love to watch for as they signal that summer is here, blooming right at the end of spring.
