Monty bought me two packages of Iris bulbs for my Birthday. I need to get them in the ground, but have no idea where t plant them..... looks like a new flower bed in my future!

Hee-hee I think Monty like the flower beds as much as you do! Buying more flowers that need a place sounds like a great way to get another bed. Have fun designing it and filling it. Happy Fall.

Way to go, Monty! Another flower bed is just what you and dew need for another season of flowering beauty. I love iris(es) and am planning to get a few of the re-blooming varieties in the near future. Right now I have to divide my current iris bed and re-do the area.

You are talking German bearded iris, right? There are so many new and interesting varieties out there. Can't wait to see them bloom next spring!

Such pretty iris-can't wait for mine to bloom this spring. I have a 20X50 garden with iris around all sides with a diamond shaped bricked bed in the center with roses in it. I have 20 or 30 different colors and they grow quite well here in the desert.

Well, you can always put them in a pot until you decide.
What kind of iris are they Dew?

edit- oops! I see you already said you didn't know what kind they are!
