              @NigelJ your unknown Iris in post #18 is possibly of the Pacific Coast species. They multiply quickly and the colours are numerous.

                @Sheal Thank you for that suggestion, it has another flower coming on it so I will have to plant it properly and not just leave it in a pot. All I can remember is that I grew it from seed a few years ago.

                  I can't take any credit for this as I bought it at the village plant sale today for the princely sum of two quid! Iris siberica.............

                          Dietes bicolor took five years from seed to bloom.............

                          Worth the wait :yahoo:

                          Interesting fact about this species - after flowering don't cut the stems off as they are perennial and will flower again for a few years apparently.

                                Do you grow the winter bloomers in pots or do you get away with them outdoors?
