Plant ID: Type of Iris??

elleni(4a)October 20, 2008

Can anyone tell me what type of Iris this could be? They were in the garden when we bought our zone 4a house. Thanks.

Lucky you! A nice Siberian iris.

Thanks. I thought it might be, but was not sure.

They look very much like my Siberian iris "Ruffled Velvet". I cannot seem to figure out how to post a photo on this site (!) but you can try Google to get a picture and compare.

They might be! I am wondering... I bought a couple bags of "Dutch Irises" and was about to plant them in the same neighborhood as these Siberian Irises, but now am not sure they will do well in my zone 4 garden. Can you all tell me how similar, or dissimilar the growing environment is for my two kinds of Irises?

Thanks again.
