Jane McGary described her success with Iris 'Sindpers'. This handsome
cultivar is blooming here in the greater Washington, D.C. area now, too.
Only today I got an email from one of my gardening friends who mentioned
that the first flowers opened today for her (and as I recall, she got it
from Jane). 

I no longer grow 'Sindpers', but about twenty-five years ago I bought one
from an English dealer. It was the first "expensive" bulb I ever purchased,
costing all of $10. 

Out in the garden, Crocus fleischeri is blooming now. The plant in the
protected cold frame bloomed long ago.
