Hello Iris Friends; Our drought spell was broken this past year and the rhizomes loved it. We had a cold, wet year.. NEW INTRODUCTION - another of Cheryl Deaton’s irises - AVERY’S HUGS - S. light yellow, slightly darker 1/2” rim; F. dark gold, overlaid violet flush thru center hafts, copperish orange; iridescent. B. dark gold in throat, dark violet base tipped gold in center, 1/2” naked white horn; purple based foliage; slight sweet fragrance. Named in memory of a fellow irisarian and dear friend, Avery Poling ($45.00 each) And, as I continue my downsizing project, the enclosed list is again offered at $1.50 each and they will be permanently removed from the garden at the end of the 2011 growing season. Some are very limited, so early ordering would be advised. Also, a list of subs would be appreciated. Again, no bonus irises will be given with these purchases. Always, a great big thank you to all my friends, customers, growers and hybridizers. Your encouragement has helped keep the garden going and growing these many years. Happy irising!


- Beard - fuzzy caterpillar type hairs that protrude from the falls. They can be thick or thin and of like or contrasting colors. Bitone - two tones of the same color. Blend - combination of two or more colors, smoothly or unevenly mixed. DM - Dykes Medal - the highest award an iris can receive; awarded to only one iris per year. Any class of iris can win the DM. F - Falls - the lower three petals of the flower. Flounces - appendages extending from the tip of the beard like little petals. Fluting - gentle dips and rises in the petal edges. Hafts - that part of the fall on either side of the tops of the beard, also referred to as the shoulders. Horns - the extension of the beard turned upward like a spear. Lace - lightly laced iris have serrated edges; heavy lace gives a crinkled, serrated look. Midrib - the stiffening mid-section of the standards which hold them upright. Plicata - stitched, stipled or banded color in contrast to the base color. RE - Rebloomer - also called remonant. An iris that blooms in any other season after its normal spring bloom; usually in summer or fall. Ruffles - waving and fluting of the iris petals; some are much more ruffled than others. Self - Standards and falls are of the same color. Spoons - appendages extending from the tip of the beard shaped like spoons. S - Standards - the upright three petals of the flower. SDB - Standard Dwarf Bearded - 8 - 16" in height. Style arms - the small stiff segments just above the beard.
