I thought I would show you my Irises that came from Home Depot, sealed in a package from W.R.Vanderschoot of Virginia. It was labeled 'Pink Attraction' with two in the package.

#1 is from last year. Only this one bloomed. Quite obviously NOT Pink Attraction.

#2 is blooming now. STILL not Pink Attraction. LOL

I like these 2 much more.

And they keep getting lovelier. Multiple flowers make for quite the show.

#2 is a luminata pattern. Both quite a distance from P.A.

If I had to guess what iris might be in a package from Home Depot labeled "Pink Attraction", a luminata would NOT be among my first dozen guesses. Of course TB iris rhizomes all look roughly the same. I wonder if one of these might be a rebloomer when it's settled in, since Pink Attraction is listed as reblooming.

I know, DawnSharon! Wouldn't you think they would market that luminata instead, LOL.

Ooooooo! I will cut down the stalks when they're done and see if either reblooms. That would be great! This is the best $7 I ever spent. LOL

I doubt if you get rebloom, but you might as well try. HD wouldn't know a lumui if it bit them.

It wasn't an HD package. It was prepackaged from a vendor.

Uow! Love that one on the right especially. I love it when I get surprises or bonuses that are better than what I had wanted. Of course, most of the time you want to get what you order...

I like pleasant surprises. If P.A. was something I really HAD TO HAVE, it would be different. But this is better by far. I seem to be enjoying the one on the left more. It's beautiful en masse.

Nice to have a good result even if it isn't what you had hoped.
