Unknown Iris - Extra Early

penelope(Z6 KY)May 15, 2011

I've been doing research and have several Iris that I can't ID. Any suggestions would be great!

Sorry that some of the pictures aren't that great - between the rains, winds and flooding, I'm just glad to have a few pictures.

Thanks in advance,


Dwarf Dark Purple - ??'Hoodlum' ?? 'Michael Paul'

IB ???

Old Fashioned:buff/yellow, 26", almost a white strip from center. Veins, orange beard.

Thanks for the lead Irisrover. I think that I have a paler flower than Tiffanja. It's is also only 26" tall. Maybe it just need more sun and to be divided. The year is about right based on where this group of iris came from.

I think your first one looks like mine, which I think is Cherry Garden, but am not sure.

Cherry Garden is a close match. The picture I pulled up was darker - but it is the closest so far.
