With all this sun and sudden increase in temperature the Iris are sprouting as fast as they can!. Although a bit less vigorous than the last couple of years almost everything is spiking and flowering. A coupled of the new additions have flowered, some though are resolutely refusing to show anything remotely resembling a flower spike. (Spring Blush, Marden Meadow, Mermaid Street and Grachus)

Snow Fiddler, Ozark Maid, Poker Chips and Daemon Imp are all spiking so flowers in the next week I hope.

The result of the cold is some short spikes and low down flowers on normally tall willowy bloomers. Dancing Lilacs (usually one of the tallest) is producing flowers within the fans...looks very odd indeed and rather cramped too.
