Joyce's Garden Iris - 2007 Photographic Diary
Having trouble keeping track of what Iris I have and don't have so will record them here as they bloom this year. Not all bloom in a single year. Photo colors not always true because of lighting.

Does not include the two very early dwarfs, the purple and the white with lavender edges. I did not record their dates of bloom this year but is it early to mid May. Dwarf White /lavender blooms every year in mid May (shown at right).

In 2008 the dwarf white/lavender started bloom May 03 and the dwarf dark purple on May 11.
