First bearded iris to bloom in my garden in 2017
Here's a picture of a bloom on 'Spring Beacon' which opened today in Enfield, NY. 'Atroviolacea' is usually the first to bloom in my garden but the buds which had color before our last frost failed to open. 'Spring Beacon' was from a cross Don Spoon made between 'Atroviolacea' and 'Lighthouse Beacon.' All three are miniature dwarf bearded (MDB) iris. What's blooming in your garden?
