I actually had such a huge collection that I gave some away to a friend when I moved, I honestly had more then I realized until I started digging them up. I usually get anywhere from 4 to 6 blooms per Iris....it is quite a show of color.
This fall, I will be dividing them again and spreading out my planting area a bit. I have my Iris collection in my back garden as well as coming down the hill in the back, next to my driveway. If I divide them up a bit more, I'll certainly have enough to finish bringing them all the way down that hill.
I love them all but the Pink Bearded Iris are my very favorites. I love to go outside and stick my nose in those beautiful pink blooms. They have such a sweet smell, to me, they actually smell like Sweet Tarts.....remember those candies??? I loved those things and that is what my Iris remind me of, only they are a lot prettier then the candy, that is for sure.
