Carol, Now you KNOW THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF NAMED IRIS out there. How about some facts to whittle down the field.!!!
How tall?? the golden one on the right--does it have a beard. what color is it??
Is the foliage pbf??
early. mid or late season??
Are they scented?
I can't see the knobby rhizomes, but I am presuming they are bearded???

you must be a member of all my blooming friends, to win.
The purple and white one is short this year, about two feet tall smells like an iris, has lavender beards, the gold and yellow is 2 1/2 feet tall no smell, gold beards. does this help granny?I will be doing a few iris but mostly daylillies.postage will be the cost of a 1 lb pkg, I think it is 3.85

I ain't scared!!! Most dogs like me (the sensible ones)could be the biscuits we carry in our pockets. ;-0
Carol is looking to ID her beauties. I just wanna help. Sometimes the difference is the size.
I really really like the golden one.
Oh yeah, & I'm bored to tears..........My gardening is limited by Dr. Boneset. grrrr

Dr. Boneset is a name I made up instead of the orthopedic Dr.'s real name. My left forearm is in a cast. UNTIL JUNE 20.

good morning everyone :)

carol, i'm glad you are trying to ID the yellow one. You sent it to me last year in one of the many swaps we've been in together. mine are in full bloom and gorgeous. i was going to post my pic and try to get an identification. not that it would matter if it was never named, because iris are my all-time favorites.

Granny are you guessing barrister and bountiful harvest?
I am not sure but dosen't have yellow beards so don't think so anyone can post a plant to be named as soon as these two are named, you must give a fan or start of plant to the person with the correct answer, you must be a bloomin friends member tho. just check with me so only one person at a time posts, I have about 50 more but will wait my turn, got one today that smells like grapes, I think it is an heirloom. hugs to all

Carol, I'm like Earthly, I'll accept any rejects you want to send my way anytime. I traded for some iris last year and they had buds when I was there at Easter. Course I couldn't stay to see what color they would be. Well, there is always "next year"

Hi Carol,
I think I found a match for our iris # 1.
It was the only intermediate that I could find that looked like ours.

No Carol, I don't need any more iris at the moment. I have a bunch in pots, and I'm getting more at the local exchange this weekend. I have no idea where I'm putting them all! I'm starting to get real confused and that is without meds, lol.
I'll just take the knowledge that I figure out an iris name as my reward: )
