Gardeners' Notes:

I received this from Schreiner's Iris Gardens, and planted it last fall right next to the steps leading down to our driveway. It is so beautiful, especially at dusk when the blue appears to be glowing above the tan falls.

It first bloomed on April 15th, 2012. It's now the end of the month and it's going strong with between 5-6 blooms without any deadheading.

I can't wait to see the rebloom in fall!
