ID Iris

HRozierMay 8, 2013

This one shocked me this week. I dont know the names of my 12 varities since they are hand-me-downs from mom and grandparents but I have never seen this one and have lived in current house for 13 years.

Does it look familiar to you guys or could it be a seed voluntyre?
Sorry for the bright light.
Ill attach a second phot with close up. Not sure if its the young flowers or not but they seem to fold on themsleves make a ballon type flower.

Cute! It looks a bit like Swerti to me, but I'm no expert.

Actually it does look more like Swerti, as its falls are tucked. That is typical of Swerti. Pocohontas has its falls open.Otherwise they look pretty similar. Swertii being much older.
