For the first time I will attend the American Iris Society National Convention. It begins tomorrow and end Saturday. Folding in a trip to visit friends on the Oregon Coast and friend in Portland I arrived on May 9. The next day I drove to Coos Bay, but on the way I could not resist a stop at Schreiner's. This largest of all iris retailers in the United States sits on the east side on I-5. Acres and acres of color catch the eye and a stopover during bloom season is always with the time. An hour or a day. There are hundreds and hundreds of cultivars to see.
Near the parking lot was bed of seedlings. This was the first to catch my eye. YY197-D with white/yellow standards and mahogany falls has a nice growing habit and good substance.
The opportunity to see seedlings in the garden is a great joy! Will they be introduced? If so, when and what will their names be?
