Winter Iris

Arroyo Grande, CA(Zone 9a)

Iris unguicularis or winter iris have done well in my garden, this one is the fourth blossom of the season.
They are a welcome sight December through February.

What a flower. The beautiful pale blue/violet is magnificent with the yellow strike. (at least that is the blue that I see :)

Yes, it is a nice blue color. I noticed the other ones posted are either purple or really washed out blue. I'm amazed there isn't more info on these on Dave's garden. I kind of thought they were an old cottage garden plant, the first ones I ever saw were in a garden in Santa Cruz, CA of an old victorian house.

Very pretty!! I , so far, have just stuck with bearded iris-- haven't tried any other varieties yet--have wanted to but so far have stuck with what I know works for me!!

South Hamilton, MA

that one won't grow this far north. On the west coast it grows to Oregon.

I used to have it in my garden but the gophers ate it.
