More Medians Monday April 23

Another of the group of SDBs by Paul Black that I purchased in 2014 from Schreiner's. The colors  of 'April Fanfare' are certainly vibrant and reminiscent of one of my favorites, 'Frisky Frolic.'  The use of April in the name reveals it's West coast Willamette Valley origin!

 Two Intermediate bearded irises that look well together. 'Obligato' is just joining the party.

'Obligato' (IB Stahly '88)
Another Paul Black SDB from 2014. 'Stop and Stare' came from Mid-America, where he and Thomas Jonson have been introducing iris since the early 80s when they were in Oklahoma.  They moved to Oregon where the climate is perfect for irises.
