I am looking for some ID's on these beautiful Dwarf Iris.
I am sure they had ID's when I got them but the tags are long gone and the list in the old lap top is also long gone.

Thanks Arlyn, It is very similar. Tom's picture looks like the edges are pale blue where mine are very white. I'll ask Tom what he thinks.

The third may be Pussy Cat Pink. Compare it with Paul's pic in the Bloom is Busting Out thread and the database.

Holly

Did you get them from an iris vendor with a website? They may be able to help narrow down the names for you.

I think you are right on both iris's I had looked at pictures and descriptions of dwarf iris I was sure that the blue one is Big Blue Eyes and now that you named the pink one as possibly Pussy Cat Pink I remember the name. I didn't buy them from a vendor they were given to me.

Thank you Lisa, right on, I have looked at the pics and read the description.
I want to thank you all for the wonderful support you have given me in ID'ing these. I have them well marked now and in my online plant journal so I won't loose them again. I tip my hat to you.
I am sure that the 1st one is Big Blue Eyes not Dot Com it is close but mine is very white like big blue eyes Dot com is more of a light blue. Not as easy to tell in my not so good picture.
Here are a couple more for you to enjoy. I didn't loose the ID's on these so you don't had to guess.

HollyAnn, do you remember if these are ones I sent you? They are all ones I grow and I think you have all the ID's correct.

The first is definitely not 'Dot com'. Its photo is good & you will note that the petal edges are blue, not white.
