astcgirl, I went back out to smell them and they smell like grape juice and root beer, I could just sniff all the smell right out of them. lol
I have plenty to share. If you remember in August Dmail me and I can send you some tubers, the bed is getting pretty big and I'll be doing some thinning. The only thing is, I don't remember the name since I bought them a loooong time ago.

Samantha I have some growing here in the heat of the desert. You might give them a try especially if they smell like grape soda!

Unique looking iris. Love the name since it is one of my favorite flowers. I will need to look that one up. Does it have a strong fragrance?
