Blue Iris is Purple
So what's new? Boy, I just hate it when they sell me "blue" and it's as purple as can be! Does this look blue to you?
It's partially my own fault.
I've been gardening long enough to know that there are very few true blue flowers, yet I still fall for their less-than-honest selling tactics.
I planted this iris two years ago and this is the first bloom. It almost always takes two years for a new iris to bloom in my garden. Yet some of you get beautiful flowers the next year (I'm thinking of Dianne's beauties she just planted last fall).
What's your secret?
