My iris have been wonderful this year. I've shared with a number of friends and they are still plentiful.
They only last a day after being picked, but the buds will bloom if left in the water.
My ajuga bed is full of blooms, too. I had bought about a half dozen plants from the nursery at Bee Caves and Mopac when they went out of business. Ajuga can be invasive, but these are confined to a bed bordered by sidewalk and decomposed granite pathway. I've been sharing with my sister, and can afford to thin out more for friends later this year.
Some of the iris came from my daughter's yard - they put in a patio and passed the plants on to me.
Others came from my sister, who had gotten them from my Mother's yard. So the iris are a family thing.
I planted one plant by each post and one more halfway between. They have really spread. My neighbor on the other side of the fence is enjoying some, too.
I have plans to share when the blooming stops and it's time to divide them up.
