Bluebeard's Ghost was the first one to come to mind.

Cindy, I did a database search for Tall Beardeds with blue beards. Shows 1,347, but you can skim the photographs and only open the ones you like... Whistling Whistling

For some reason, the link to the specific search didn't copy correctly, here. Just select Tall Bearded, and enter blue in the Beard Color field.

Two that I have with striking blue beards





A lot of irises have blue beards but, in many cases, the petals are also blue and beards just kind of blend in.

Probably my favorite Iris with blue beards is Alien Mist!

I need Alien Mist.... or Codicil..

I love the beards on Concertina... not only are they blue, but they're horned too. Thumbs up
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Oh, so many lovely ones, how to choose.

Mary Ann, Alien Mist looks very nice and it looks nice and tall. I like that 3 blooms are open at once.

Cynthia -- I like absolutely everything about Alien Mist. I love the color, I love the beards, I love it's growth habits. It is a *so cool* Iris!!

Sherry -- I'll be happy to send you Alien Mist -- I have it in several places. I'll need to wait until Spring though, to make sure I send an Alien Mist rhizome, and not the Iris next to it!! Green Grin!
