When we moved into our bungalow 7 years ago. There were some old iris plants in the back yard where we were putting our deck addition. So I dug them up and replanted them.
Every year they came up fine but would not bloom. My elderly neighbor had some in her yard so I talked to her. She said I had them too deep. I needed to have them laying right on top the dirt. So I dug them up and a little more each year but tried to keep their roots in the soil. Still no blooms.
Each year I tried to expose more and more of the bulbous tuber. Still no blooms until this year!!!!
I had no idea what color they were until now...with two a flesh like pink and the other purple.
I am so excited as it has been a constant challenge to get to this point.
