I've waited 2-3 years for these to bloom. I think that I got them in trades or from friend, so that's no help.

This is a little darker than the pic shows: Fucshia Iris:

Blue #1 in BF Garden:
Blue in Tie Gar

Blue # 2 in Tie Garden: (Is this the same as Blue #1?)
Blue in Tie Gar

Light Blue in WS Garden:(I can get a better pic of this today)
Lt. Blue in WS Gard
And a closeup of the first flower:

Thanks for any help you can give,

RE: Are these LA Iris?

The top pink & blue look like Louisianas. I've never seen a veined one like the bottom pic tho. Nice. Does its foliage match the others?

Additional Info

I don't think that #3(the veined one) is as tall. I'll go measure. I was looking on the internet and found Iris virginica (Southern Blue Flag) Does #3 look anything like that?

RE: Are these LA Iris?

Sure looks like the photo by Dennis Kramb! Thanks for the id.

I was trying to find your fuchsia one and came up with these names:
Chuck (one photo at Daves looked more burgandy but all else looks very close)
Delta Honey (at Andiris - petals look fuller)
Freddie Boy (at Daves - styles look too green)
Wheelhorse (at iriscity - styles not as pink)
Red Echo & Red Dazzler - (darker fall cnt stripe)

More info

iris gal -
I checked all the ones you mentioned above. While I was at Iris City Gardens - I saw I. nelsonii. What do you think. The color in my picture is a lot more fuschia than it should be.

BTW: Should I tell you that I'm planning a trip to ICG in the next few weeks. It's not that far form me.


Even more info

This fuchsia iris is located where it receives the rainwater that runs off of pine needles that are on the ground. What effect could that have, if any, to the color?

RE: Are these LA Iris?

I nelsonii looks dead on to me also.

I don't have any of these species but my beardeds' colors are most affected by weather. Some cultivars more than others.

The biggest color problem is the camera. Should have made that plural. The computer monitor too. Pics look so much better on my desktop monitor :-)

You have some treasures there.
