>Not a good enough picture for Images but thought you might care to see how >well this once cosseted bulbous iris now performs here in the open >http://pacificbulbsociety.org/pbswiki/files/… > Peter, Now that I have finished weeping in uncontrollable jealousy <grin> I just have to say how wonderful that must look in the garden. My 3 or 4 little bulbs are jealously guarded each year to make sure they grow and slowly multiply as I just LOVE the little bulbous Irises. Having a display of them like that must be a joy, although fairly short-lived I'd imagine? What a display!! So glad that you sent the picture (and Mary Sue uploaded to the wiki). Just wonderful!!
