Sea Power | Blue Iris - Sea Power's incredibly surging bubble ruffling and its deep cornflower blue color evoke images of an angry sea responding to Neptune's command. This child of Yaquina Blue X Jazz Me Blue probably has the most lavish ruffled flower form of any blue Iris we know. An added plus is its pronounced sweet fragrance.

Perennials That Love the Sun
Iris germanica 'Crazy for You'
We had a big garden out front that was full of different plants (my favorite being the purple iris). In the mornings during summer, we would go out and weed for 1/2 an hour or so. I had a hard time sticking to the task as a kid, but as I grew older I appreciated the time outside and now I love gardening. One of the many things I owe to Mom.
