RE: Iris id

I should add.... the yellow/purple one just bloomed in zone7 on May 18. The deep dark large purple/yellow one bloomed May 10 and still lookin good. The lightest lavender one that smells like a grape lillipop bloomed May 10 and still is. The purple/lavendar one bloomed around May 5. thanks, Bronwyn

RE: Iris id

Your first one in the vegie bed is 'Loreley'.

The others also look like historics, sorry I don't recognize them.

RE: Iris id

I concur with the 'Loreley' id. The violet is *probably* some form of I. pallida, the second to last is *probably* some form of I. germanica, and I wish I knew the id of the dark purple, because it's my favorite of your photos.

RE: Iris id

Thank you for your help.... :o) I think I'm hooked :o)
