Those are beautiful. I’m not familiar with that variety.
Michele gets them from catalogs- usually Breck's. I just plant them and weed around them. She saved the label from the packaging, and that's what was on it.

This fellow tried to go fishing in our lake today, but if you look at the left of the photo, you'll see a blackbird coming to drive him away. Pretty soon there were several blackbirds dive-bombing Mr. Heron. He gave up and flapped away.

And actually, the herons will take tiny ducklings if they can’t get fish. So these six little ones are safe for the moment. Sadly, there were 10 of them yesterday. :(

The small koi in our lake don't stand a chance with this graceful predator—a great blue heron! I saw that fierce spear flash down, the head go up into the air, and a bulge go down that long throat.
