I photographed this reticulata Iris in one of the RHS Alpine houses in the UK (March 2014). It was looking splendid due to the protection from any inclement weather. Perhaps a little too 'delicate' (and expensive) to try growing outdoors.
A very special little specimen!!

This is a gorgeous, if expensive, reticulata Iris. The flower is a luminous pale yellow--it looks like pale yellow tissue paper or silk.
