Bloomin hot today. Lovely though.
Irisses! I always feel they need shallow plantIng and plenty of hot summer sun on those roots to flower.
I love the flowers....got a particularly nice purple, but yellow, pale blue. It's that foliage that's hard to accommodate. Looks awful during the summer and I've never managed to totally conceal them then. Will try harder I guess.
For me they thrive on neglect. So I don't feed, mulch or cosset. Works....so far.
