Please help to ID these TB Irises. I lost tags. Any help and guesses will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Might you at least know where you got them from?...Purchased on line? From friends/neighbors? In a trade?
Sue, as far as I remember, I got them from Lowe's. They should be quite common. I think the first one is suppose to be 'Changing Pace'. Obviously, it is not.
OK, I guess it is hard to identify these Irises...
Any guesses? That would help to narrow down my choices...
They are really pretty, especially that first one. I can't ID them though, sorry.
Love that first one!
You could try going to an online catalog like BlueJ Iris and searching on color/type.
Sorry I'm no help. I have War Chief, Cannonball, & Sultan's Palace, they all look similar to me, & to your 3rd one. I really love your 1st 2, if you are ever looking for a trade, let me know. Seems like they are individual enough someone could ID them.
Thanks for your kind words! I do like the first two. I hate the third one....
Alisande, I did try to find their names using BlueJ catalog before I posted my question. I did not find anything similar to #1 and #2 with their color/type search. As for #3, too many varieties look like it.
I guess, I have to just browse the entire catalog to find matches.
Ngraham, that is what I thought - the first two are quite distinctive to ID...
The first one looks like several of Schreiners iris. I get my catalog out and see if I can id tehm for you that way.
I don't grow it anymore but your second one looks just like "Liaison". I did a search and here is the link to Daves Garden with pictures.
I believe you nailed it! Thanks a lot!
I think I recalled the name of the first one - 'Vigilante'. Mine looks lighter than pictures on the Daves Garden, but none of those pictures reflect colors correctly. I always look at the foliage. None of the 'Vigilante' pictures have a correct green color.
Third one looks like Vitafire.
Alina, why don't you like the third one? It's a nice color. If it's fragrant too, I'll take it off your hands if you like.
Iris no 3 could be Lady Friend.
Your first one is not Vigilante. I bought it last year and it bloomed for me this year and it is as dark as the ones at Dave's garden. So if yours is lighter, then it isn't Vigilante. It looks familiar though. Let me look at my pictures and see if I have one that looks like it.
I looked at my iris' pictures and it look similar to Jazz Festival, but I am still not sure.
Here is a link that might be useful: Jazz Festival
Sorry for abandoning my thread. Was very busy fighting with deer and rabbits :o)
Thanks for all your comments! I really appreciate your help!
Happyday, I am just into clean colors... It has that brick/brown overtones in it... Not to my liking. No fragrance. Strong grower though.
Chere, it does not look like Jazz Festival. The beards are much darker. I've found the tag: I bought it as Vigilante ;) Another mislabeled one. Thanks for confirming that it is NOT a Vigilante...
Pat, love Lady Friend! It is not the correct one though: LF has much brighter red.
Vitafire looks very close to #3!
One thing I would like to say is that many iris sold in such stores such as Lowe's, K mart, walmart etc are NOT correct to begin with as the Dutch Growers flood with similar colors and they are sold as such and such and they are seldom true
This looks a lot like my Gypsy Mystic
I love to try indentifying..................but this is beyond me. Here's a partial list of reds if you're really determined. I love the top one. The second may be Liason. The only way to know for sure is to compare the stalk's branch pattern. As I recall, the standards were more beige than pink or white and the fall rim pale lavender.
Disregard foliage - unfortunately the color green can be totally off while the other colors may be on. And vice-versa.
