I've grown this iris for years, but have never known the name of it. I've always just called it "Weird Iris". Could any of you give me a better name for it? Many thanks.

Pretty Space Age Iris you have.

To find other Space Agers:
Go to the Iris database
The Irises Database
Select Search by characteristics (height, bloom color, etc).
http://garden.org/plants/group/irises/search/
Then select one of the Space Age Beard Appendages

You may never be able to put a cv. name to your Iris but you should be able to determine what classification it belongs to.

Thanks, Evan. I like the name Space Age better than Weird Iris.
