South side of circle. Unknown type.
Kay's sister, Denise, gave us a bag full of unidentified irises in fall of 2009 just before it started freezing.
Here was the only one to bloom in 2010. Someone online said that she thought it is "Magic Pallet", but nothing by that name comes up when Googled.
I don't know that the one above was one of Denise's bunch. In 2013, it didn't come up and I don't recall if it did in other years.
April 2011We were given 4 irises (2 each for Kay and me) at a Garvan Gardens class on irises.
The rocks in these pictures are a temporary measure against the very strong winds we are experiencing now.
This one ("Clarence") is a rebloomer and was planted in the northwest bed by some other rebloomers:
These Intermediate Bearded were planted in the northeast bed by some crested irises.

April 2012: This bed of irises is at the bottom of the hill in the back yard. We have not had any luck getting plants to grow down there
2013: These irises are mostly in shade (no afternoon sun at all) and the rhizomes are not even kept cleared, but they flower faithfully:
May 2, 2013: Northeast bed: Since the River Birch tree was removed, this bed probably gets the most sun of any.
May 15, 2013: The iris on the right is unknown. It came up near where the MegaBucks iris was planted which never came up, and is somewhat similar, so that's what it's being called:

Iris ensata 'Shogun'In an iris class at Garvan Gardens, we were told that Japanese Irises are very hard to grow in Arkansas.
Unfortunately, these were ordered long before the class and haven't bloomed.
See the irises in the street bed of the side lot.
April 21, 2015. Here are a couple of irises from the center bed of the side lot:
