Oh my many flowers so little time. I have the Beverly Sills they were showing in picture. It is in shade and I think I need to move it for more bloom. Thanks for the website.. Elaine

Help! I found this gorgeous iris at my hairdresser's. No one knows what it's called - in fact, they know nothing about it other than it's been there 'forever' and it just does its thing. It is blacker than this photo and it smells delicious. Any idea what it is?

I'm pretty sure there's an iris forum--you might have better luck posting there.

Is there a kind of iris that's good for naturalizing? I like irises but I always have a much harder time fighting the burmuda grass around irises. If I could find one that could grow through the grass that would be great.

I'd recommend the iris forum for that question too--you'll probably get more suggestions there.
