LOL Joan.....you know, I don't know....LOL I can't even put out any theory about that name...LOL
Is the iris confused? Is that why it is so named?
Thank you Warbler :) Yes, can't wait for the spring to come back. And the winter didn't even started yet......LOL
Nice photo and a good touch of things to come this spring. Thanks Barb!!
Thank you so much Punkin... :))) I agree, it truly is a beautiful flower, perfectly symmetrical and pristine... :)
What a glorious iris, Barb! Love the white with the yellow on the petals.
Many succulents like this climate too, but for some it is too austere. Keeping them in pots helps in survival too. They can be babied when in pots :)
Wow! That's dry!!! No wonder you can grow cacti so successfully!! How about succulents? Would they survive? I think you're right about central Australia being similar - and not much grows there either!!
Robyn, I live in a desert. We have one or two inches of rain in a year. The air is very dry as well. All year around we have anywhere from 3% humidity to maybe 12% if we are lucky. Not very many plants can grow in such dry and very hot climate. I think the interior of Australia is very much similar to the Arizona desert.
This is a pretty one Barb - what a shame you still don't have it! It must be really dry where you live!!! Do you get much rain?
Thank you laurajane :) Well, this iris was mine but it was in ground and I had to leave it in FL when I moved. So I don't have it anymore.... Congrats on your first place on the leaderboard!!!
How delicate and perfect, Sunnybarb. Is this yours?
Thank you so much for your comment TYR! This is an Iris flower, a species. Very pretty and easy to grow.
