Dutch Iris this year

North Shore of L. I., NY(Zone 6b)

I have had many threads here about my interest in Dutch Iris and planting Dutch Iris in my garden and how they did. Here are the old threads (starting with the oldest first) in case anyone is interested-

I am finially trying Dutch Iris for real-

My Dutch Iris are comming up-

Hey, my Dutch Iris are comming up all over the place-

So this past fall, really late in the fall or maybe early winter all those Dutch Iris started growing after being dormant all summer after spring bloom. Then they continued to grow all winter. Now the folliage is as tall as it ever gets and the dutch iris clumps are nice and green. Look healthy in spite of the fact that it is still really early here. It was a strange winter, mostly very mild with lots of rain and no snow.

Now to wait until much later and warm weather and hopefully they will all bloom like they are supposed to. I do really, really love the looks of them. I just think the flowers are so pretty. They have that unusual shape and such stunning colors and color combos.
