The varieties I moved from Vancouver were: Cherry Garden 1966 (small variety), Pink Bubbles 1980 (small variety), and Gay Parasol 1973 (tall variety). Any iris more than 30 years post introduction year is considered historic. That makes me historic too. I also added Los Coyotes 1992 - not historic. I planted woolly thyme, which it looks like will stay very close to the ground, which I want. The marigold sweet alyssum seedlings are about 1 inch tall.

Roman chamomile is too rangy. After bloom, it will have to go elsewhere. Greek oregano is also too tall for the small iris plants. Lime thyme, French thyme, and sweet alyssum are ideal size.
