This might just be a great year for irises. I admit to a particular love of the iris. It’s low maintenance, unlike the rose. Individual iris rhizomes are expensive. Not all make it once planted in the fall. They just don’t plant right. But if an iris “takes” you are truly rewarded in the spring
Daffodils are long gone. Violet have pretty much had it. My one healthy azalea looks pretty good. The other two are circling the drain. The Kousa dogwood is getting ready to spring to glory. A few Jobes’ tree spikes seem to make an old tree young again.
