Gay Parasol
April 12th, 2010

Gay Parasol

Irises are my favorite flower, in case you can’t tell from all the iris patterns.

I don’t grow them very successfully (and don’t know why) but I love them, not just the iridescence in the petals but the fragrance too. Usually Silverado and Edith Wolford make an appearance but I think the one other plant with a bud is another Gay Parasol. I have several kinds that have never bloomed, and probably wouldn’t know what they were at this point.

    LOVE the irises! They are my favorite, too, and mine are budding up and about to bloom; my neighbor has blooms all over already! I can’t recall ever seeing so many blooms here before the first of May – my Dutch iris haven’t even bloomed yet, they are always done before the Beards come out. Weird year already…
