Steve. I LOVE the red fringed poppy! May need to do a seed exchange with you IF you would like some from the Big Orange ones we have. The black Iris I have (only one) is done blooming. They are so striking, I hope it multiplies like the yellow ones have.Oh no! About my favorite flower
Your season is progressing just about the same as here - at the 48th parallel, 2,000' elevation .
The blacks are still blooming but the earlier whites and magenta (?) are finished. Blacks receive more sun but run a little later and longer.

Next to the iris, are campanula. There is a bumblebee there but I waited too long and he is busy in one of the flowers.

Here is the very first of these annual poppies, even tho it is very much in the shade.
