    Oh yes, and while it's really hard to pick favorites because everything you show us is so beautiful.... I also lust for that Iris ensata Dragon Mane :smitten:

    I was lucky to find it in a very small garden center very near from where we live. I did not see it elsewhere. The new owners are echinaceas fanatics!

    It is a 2012 introduction in Canada. I think it must be available in USA too.

    I had to have a Japanese Iris, so I picked up a pink one at our local nursery. No name, just "Ensata hybrid". :D Now I need to find room for it. :eek:

    How are you growing your Dactyl. maculata? Are they in a bog setting with the Ensata/Kampferi iris?

    With rhodies. Dapple shade. Well drained rich soil, pH less than 6.4.

    Yes and no... almost all my JI are grown in pots, but the pots sit almost always in water (1 to 3 inches deep... sometimes more). I remorved the pots from the "pool" in fall and give them a protection from winter frost.

    Unfortunatly I discoverd many thrips in flower buds dans many buds blasted. I neglected to remove the dead foliage last spring....
