It was a beatiful day in GA today, 68* and sunny. I decided to do some yard clean up and found that my iris reticulata Gordon is blooming. These were just planted last fall, it's been freezing here for months, and today was the warmest day that I can remember in a long time.
The bloom time reported on the package stated that this iris is an early bloomer, which was listed as April. It just goes to show that Mother Nature is in control and these bulbs will bloom whenever they want, freezing weather, snow, freezing rain or whatevever!!!!
