I thought my Irises were done for the year but a new bloom has popped up. I so love the dark color on this one.
SOLVED: Unexpected Iris bloom
That's two specimens of Cat Iris there ;-)
Great picture !
Is that iris a male or a female...or an "other" ?
Wow ! That's reallllllly dark !
Schreiners really does have superb iris.
I think it's a Venus Mousetrap. I believe they can be propagated only by seed. :-)
Any attempts at propagation by cuttings has been deterred by the semi concealed " thorns"
(thank you- though the all black is a classic beauty!)
Yes, in my experience Venus Mousetraps are not invasive unless the temperature above the bed covers becomes significantly colder than the temperature underneath the bed covers. :-)
Now, now , ladies, It is a potted Burmese, definitely an indoor speciman. To be moved inside and quickly. luv the picture!
looks like Feline Beardless to me. "Sun loving,heatSoaker."
Seems I'm not the only one who is a sucker for these. Do they flower in catkins?
They do not transport well in priority mail, so I hope the adopters were local. Seems there is a lot of variation in the species. They do like to pop up anywhere in the garden so be sure to try and get the ones with sterile seeds.
So funny; so many beautiful cultivars of these! Yes its true, as pretty as they are, you don't want them to self sow all over!
