The blooms just keep on coming!
When I decided to take on this iris gardening thing a few years back, I never dreamed I would be spending $55 for a rhizome. But when I saw what was available in 2011 introductions from Mid-America, I was temped beyond reason. Frontline is the first picture below. I expected that it would take two years before I would see some of these in my garden. For a couple I will... but much of what I ordered has bloomed... and so here it is:
The first bloom Frontline is very compact on a single tall straight stem. The ruffles and lace on this perfectly formed bloom are a treat, but the blue violet veining in the falls is unique.
