Before we sold my Great Aunt Myrtle's property I got a start of some of her purple Iris. But they haven't done very well where they were planted and I have found Iris seem to especially like growing at the base of trees. So I moved them this year and hopefully they will now take off. Don't you just love old wagon wheels and Iris together? This is a little sitting area in front of my house. I think it will be a good spot for them to live.
