lily or iris?

paloma_2009(7)October 10, 2012

hello, I have many colours of iris germanico, germanic iris? or lilies? doubts!

A couple of days ago, this lily or iris started blooming, 1st. one shy flower next day the 2nd one on top of it and many more buds along the long stem.

I found the bulb somewhere in the garden when I bought the house no idea what kind of lily or iris it is

Sure it is beautiful

I live in a mediterrean province of San Luis Argentina in beautiful 3er. microclima in the world, Villa de Merlo, San Luis Argentina

happy gardening to all

If it is an iris, it will have three stamens.

If it is a lily (Lilium), it will have six stamens.

Of course, other types of plants are not ruled out here, but if those are your only two choices, it will be easy to tell the difference.
