    My dad hybridized this one. It's named after my daughter.

    I meant to add that I can't wait to see the pics of your dad's place.
    I bet it's absolutely beautiful!
    Sure wish I could grow irises here!

    Oh yes--Dad has it as a business. People come and dig up what they like--pay him and take them home to plant in their gardens. He has 10,000s of Iris in every color you can imagine. He also sells peonies and hostas and dayliles. I worked with him for years--until I started teaching full time. It's how I paid for my sewing machine. :wink:

    I'll post pics when I get them.

    Can't wait to see the irises! They grow great here in Maine, too, and are my favorite. Will be looking forward to the pictures.

    I'll ask Dad today if he's shipping anymore. I think it was a pain, so he stopped. but, he'll know the best place to get them. Here's his website: http://www.borglumsiris.com/

    Note--Dad's wife is really several inches taller than him... he stood on higher ground when the front photo was taken. :lol:
