With the cooler temperatures that we have been experiencing along Nova Scotia's Eastern Shore this year, peak bloom has been delayed by about a week. Japanese irises are just starting to open, with 99% not open as of July 7th. We expect peak bloom for the Japanese irises to run from July 14th to July 29th. However, all of our Japanese irises have been moved to new beds in preparation for the Society for Japanese Irises summer convention in 2020. There will be a nice show ths year but not as robust as usual, but the next 2-4 years will be wonderful!
