Can someone please help me ID what type of Iris this is?
Such a snaky stem on the bud.
Thanks! Ann

I have no clue, Ann. It will be interesting to see what responses you get!

PBF and purple stem, maybe I. versicolor in parentage?

Agree with Evan, as always. John Wood is a common one, to start your search, and it comes out twisty like yours. Don't know if it has PBF, though.

When Gerald Darby bloomed last year I went photo hunting for purple stems. I bet a mature clump is a sight.

It bloomed today!
What do you think? The Iris is more purple than the picture shows.
Thanks. Ann
