Iris Boo

By Markham – 1971

They don’t come any cuter than Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris “Boo”.  She doesn’t get any taller than 12 inches.  An amoena, which means that the standards are white and the falls are colored. In this case there is a crescent shaped purple spot on the falls with detailed veining and penciling near the beards, which are yellow. This cutie won the award of merit in 1976. They are early bloomers and you may want to get down close to smell the sweet fragrance.

Iris Blue Denim

By Warburton – 1958

I just love the color of this historic Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris. It’s a true sky blue, the ruffled falls and standards are the same color but there is noticeable darker blue veining throughout and a yellow beard for accent.  This Iris pumila is about 12 inches tall and is great for the rock garden or front of the border.

Daylily Velvet Thunder

By Benz – 1994

This variety has deep red velvety blossoms with a white wire edge that extends part way up the petals. The flowers shine with diamond dusting and are lightly ruffled with a light fragrance as a bonus. The plant is both nocturnal and extended blooming due to its thick heavy substance and the bright green throat also helps it show up in the moonlight. The plant has 28 inch scapes with 5 inch flowers. It is a mid-season blooming, dormant tetraploid.

Daylily Ruffled Apricot

By Baker – 1972

daylily-ruffled-apricot1This fragrant, golden apricot beauty is the same color all the way down into the throat which is a little unusual. The accents are subtle; a lavender pink mid-rib that is really interesting and I love the diamond dusting. She really grabs your attention with her wide, round, ruffled blooms that are 7 inches across and held on 28 inch scapes. An early mid-season, dormant, tetraploid this daylily has nice heavy substance which is why the bloom is extended.  Sometimes the flowers even look okay the next day. She looks really nice with a lighter peach daylily.  I have her with Ming Snow. This daylily has won many awards, most notably the 1982 Stout Silver Medal award.

Daylily Lilting Lavender

By Childs – 1973

This lavender daylily has a striking unusual form that curls and twists. The curls on this one are quite graceful rather than being crazy like some unusual forms. They tend to curl back just at the tip of the petals and the lemon yellow throat helps to get it noticed. The 8 inch flowers are held high on 30 inch scapes and have a light fragrance. A dormant diploid this plant blooms mid-season and then re-blooms.

Iris Gingersnap

Developed by Schreiner it is a seedling of Brass Accents and Dark Chocolate – 1965

This tall bearded Iris is difficult to show in a photo. The rich ginger brown color with gold accents has a rich sheen that shows up in the right light.

It is taller than 3 feet, but the sturdy stems keep it from tipping even when loaded with tons of blooms. It is an early mid-season bloomer, but the thing that you will really remember is its memorable root beer fragrance. We sometimes call it the root beer Iris.

Hosta So Sweet

By Vaughn/Aden – 1986

Hosta Fragarent Boquet, So Sweet, Diana Remembered, Wolverine, Thunderbolt

Hosta Fragrant Bouquet, So Sweet, Diana Remembered, Wolverine, Thunderbolt

The flowers are the best part of this splendid plant.  They are white and very fragrant, not to mention being large, and an interesting long white spike forms before they open. They wait until the warmth of summer to bloom so the fragrance can waft. The sun tolerance, rapid growth and glossy light green, lanceolate leaves helped it to become hosta of the year in 1996. The bright white margins ribbon the edges and match the flowers. The medium sized 2 x 1 ½ foot plants really like at least a half day of sun and they will grow faster and bloom better in sun. A seedling of Fragrant Bouquet, she is also one of the last to go dormant in fall due to nice substance.
