Currently I have about 200 JI's. It's great in June and July.

Rub it in! First lobster rolls and now these. Oh 200, incredible! I like these so much more than bearded iris.

You may find it shocking but I enjoy the lobster bisque even more than the lobster roll. I like the JI's more, too. They don't fall over in the wind and bloom for a longer period of time. They increase so much faster than TBI's.
