Okay, now I am definitely ready for spring! I love daffodils and had these planted in my garden in Washington state. I haven't planted any here in Montana because the springs are so cool here. But they will be back in my life again, I am sure.
This exquisite Iris is one of my favorites. It is a Siberian Iris and grows very well here in Montana.
This pretty flower grows on a stem about 3 feet tall and it's leaves are spike like and are soft and blow so pretty in the breeze. All the books say this flower needs mild winters but this plant has survived, been divided a few times, and has stood temperature of 20 degree's below zero here in my garden. The colors are clear and vibrant with such interesting designs in the center of each flower. The beautiful tall leaves stay green all summer and die slowly into winter. I have had no problems dividing them any time through out the growing season.
I highly recommend this gem for your garden.

I used to have purple and yellow iris's in the ditch out front of my house. They smell great! And make a wonderful bouquet!
