I always assumed they were LI years ago when I dug them up from my mother in laws yard. I divide them after they bloom most every year. I started out with just a couple and I now have hundreds and hundreds in pots and scattered around my yard in the ground.

I'm no expert, but they look just like what I call my Louisiana irises, and mine are blooming now. Are the rhizomes striped like a bumble bee?

Yes, the rhizomes are heavy ribbed and striped.

I was told that striped rhizomes were definitive for Louisianas. Hope somebody who really knows will step in here.

I don't know, but they are very pretty.

From researching the net, I've come to think this Iris is some blue version of 'Iris hexagona' a Louisiana Iris. I dug them up in east-central Mississippi at my deceased mother in laws house, so I couldn't ask where she got them. Anyway, that's what I'm thinking now.
