Bloomed w/ huge intense blue flowers. Very thick stalks that held up to the wind and rain of a severe thunderstorm w/ tornado warnings--flowers held up well too:) Very pleased w/ this one.

Big flowers a great "Blue" with thick stalks no need for staking.

Mine too came as a bonus from Schreiner's in 2006. Like Lacy Snowflake, in 2008 the flowers were huge and gorgeous and the stalk fell over. They are really beautiful flowers, though. Those two plus Snow Cloud and Titan's Glory look lovely together, in the same size range - maybe staked?

I, too, received Blueberry Bliss as a bonus from Schreiner's. It bloomed this year, its first and is one of the most intense blue irises I have seen. I am delighted to have it in my garden.

Now, after yet another year, I couldn't be more delighted with an iris than I am with Blueberry Bliss. It was better the second year than the first. Another great Schreiner's blue.

Blueberry Bliss came to me as a Schreiner extra two years ago. In its first year, it did not bloom. This year, however, it has exploded into a clump that was in constant bloom for over three weeks. The flowers are huge and deep colored, and they have a pronounced sweet fragrance.
