I thought maybe it was Jessie's Song but now I am not so sure. I got a truck load of them from a person moving into a new home and ripping out the existing gardens.
Does anyone know what this Iris is?
The flower stalk is just over 3 feet and on one stalk I counted as many as 7 flowers/buds
It is an older form of plicata than Jesse's song. i would suggest trying HIPS website as it looks like a historic type of irises to me. You can get the site through www.irises.org whic is the AIS site & click on the historic site.
Thanks, I'll check it out, although looking around other websites today I thought it maybe looked a bit like Mme Chereau ??
Note that your flower has blue lines on the hafts, but Blue Shimmer does not. Close, but not there.
I would say closest to S. Francisco. Look at the beards. Are they yellow?
The beard tip is white and gets sort of a creamy yellow near the throat. Does it matter that mine has a wider band of purple color along the bottom edge?
