Re: our garden flowers


Beautiful flowers, we are trying to sprout some Night Blooming Jasmine, we have looked eveywhere trying to find some and did fine some online, when it came it was 90% dead and didn't make it. So we ordered some seed and are trying to sprout them.

Here is one of our Iris':

Re: our garden flowers


A wild iris in my yard. They're very small and delicate looking.

Re: our garden flowers


Yikes cat's pajamas ...that is gorgeous. When you say 'wild'
did that just show up from a bird dropping a seed?
so pretty.

Re: our garden flowers


Two Knots:
Ten or so of these pop up around my yard every spring. I'm not sure if they are from a bulb that overwinters, or what. I need to do some research. I'll post what I find out about them.
They really are quite lovely.

Update: Here is what I found out about my wild iris:
Sierra Iris - Iris hartwegii
Range: Western Sierra Nevada Mountains above the foothills, from Plumas County at the southern tip of the Cascade Range, south to Kern County; 2,000 to 7,000 feet elevation.

Plants individual - "clumps" are actually many single plants grown up where generations of seeds fell.

Flower color: Usually light cream to bright yellow with a darker yellow center spot; --->sometimes maroon or lavender, often with darker veins, especially in the southern Sierra Nevadas south of Yosemite Valley<--- (that's mine!).

Re: our garden flowers


Japanese Iris in bloom.
I love them...many people do as well.

The walking stick tree ( to the right of the iris)
was about 15" high when we planted it
about 20 years ago...it's now about 9 feet high...slow grower.
It's such an interesting tree.

Re: our garden flowers


Even more Japanese Iris in another bed.
The yellow flag Iris is water Iris..I didn't like it
in the pond as it gets too big. It's also invasive...
I love invasive plants, but not yellow Iris...so we pulled
it out and planted it in flower beds instead of water.

Re: our garden flowers


Water Iris...I love these, I wish they were as invasive as the
yellow water Iris, but, they're not.

Re: our garden flowers


Even more water Iris...the fish were all excited when they saw me,
they were hoping to be fed.

Re: our garden flowers


Wow, you have one gorgeous, yard and garden. That took an awful lot of love and work to get it there.

Re: our garden flowers


Thanks big Jim...we're looking forward for the roses
poping out all the way. Roses don't like company, but
my head groundskeeper (the other knot) pays no
attention to that..No weeds to pull -- when you plant
close and plant invasive plants!
