I think this one might be Wabash?

The next ones I have NO clue.

This one is VERY fragrant. Kind of smells grapey. LOVELY!

RE: Iris ID

In looking at the color of the beards I 'think' your first one 'might' be Bright Hour.

Per the article linked below:
The one point of absolute discrimination between these iris is the base color. 'Wabash' is tinged with faint purple at the base of the fans, most visable in the spring, 'Bright Hour' has no purple whatsoever.

hmmm...I am supposed to have Wabash, but am now going to check and see if it has a faint purple tint at the base of the fans.

I'm clueless on the others...sorry.

RE: Iris ID

The irises in the first photo have a purplish cast to the fans at the bottoms. Here are a couple more that need ID'ing.







RE: Iris ID

Wow, what beautiful clumps of iris! I love your Wabash/Bright Hour iris the best. What stunning colors.
Sorry I can't help you with the IDs, but I sure do like looking at your garden.


RE: Iris ID

I'd really love to ID these. Especially the red, gold/pink and purple/white one. These are from the church my husband and I were married in. The church was torn down years ago. I went in and grabbed these right before the place was torn down.

RE: Iris ID

the burgundy one could be Chief Waukesha. as for the others, check out the HIPS website and look through the gallery. they have pictures of some very popular historic irises. you might be able to find your plant there if you think it may be more than 30years old.
