Sioux Uprising-Anyone have a pic?

Posted by chemocurl zone 5/6 S IN (My Page) on

I picked this one up (sight unseen) at a sale recently. It is a hook or spoon type I think (was labeled). Does that mean it is a spaceager?

Someone provided a link a while back about space age irises, but I have lost it. Might anyone know of a good site with good explanation?

Try looking in

RE: Sioux Uprising-Anyone have a pic?

Thanks Gran,

When I searched initially, I think I only found a pic. Anyway....

I see it on this page.

It mentions having a 3/8" horn...but nothing about spaceage.
Is spaceage a trait or a breeder?


RE: oops

Found the answer. (taken from the link below)

The Space Age Irises have horn's that extend from the end of the beard. The horn is a spear like appendage that emerges from the fall at the end of the beard. The tip of the horn is sometimes flat which is referred to as a spoon or may be split and laced making a flounce which looks like little petals.

I see there are numerous breeders, just like any other iris.


Here is a link that might be useful: Prevost Ranch and Gardens-Space Age Iris

A thread that has pictures of the different appendages on spaceage iris.
Hooks or Spoons?
