By haighr"Dahlia Splendor"
I save my dahlia tubers from year to year. I don't mark them so I can be surprised as they begin to bloom.
By haighr"Beauty of Nature"
This plant has blooms that are somehow opposite. Some are like this one and others are more solid and only a tiny bit of speckles? Another oddity of nature.

By wefarmasmidgenI spend my summers at 8250' in the Montana mountains. I love to dabble to see what will grow. I have quite a few iris and all "survive" (that is they have green leaves) but this habit iris is the only one that has bloomed so far. The nearest I can figure, the mountain is low zone 3 or high zone 2

By harloiris'Cat's Eye" makes a beautiful clump and one reason it is among the most photographed of all Iris.
By harloiris"Florintina" is probably the oldest known Iris cultiver, dating to the 1500's.
By peony11This tulip is called "Apricot Beauty", which bloomed in late April 2011 in my garden. The beige foundation is behind it, so I used a short depth of field to blend the background with the leaves. The overcast weather helped since I did not use a circular polarizer on my Olympus FE-360.
By peony11This tulip is another one of the "Apricot Beauties" planted in my front garden, blooming in late April 2011. I love macro photography of flowers, and the abstract contours of this flower that are lit by late morning sunlight. Olympus FE-360 camera.

I'm not sure of the exact name of this dahlia but it seems to be an Informal Decorative Dahlia variety. It belongs to a neighbor and is growing in full sun next to the sidewalk. I enjoying viewing it every time I pass by.
