iris would bloom in April not in January. My unknown fragrant peach iris is blooming right now!
The first bloom opened yesterday just in time for the cold front which is passing though our area right now. The wind is howling, things are blowing around the garden and the temperature has dropped from the high yesterday of 85° to 48°
It begins to look as though the plant is putting its all into this one bloom time because there are 5 bloom stalks which will open in the next few days, if the weather will allow.
The garden is well ahead of itself this year although other plants seem to be holding back on blooming. The smart ones know that there is still some winter to come.
