Rolling on the floor laughing Rob's Beyond Curiosity iris. Maybe you'll get to see it properly next year Crossing Fingers!

Evelyn - You have so many gorgeous blooms Lovey dubby . I love your NoID too. It looked to me like it had some comic opera in it but I think Rob's suggestion in more on the money.

Robin and Rob ~ Thank You! When it comes to blended colors and patterns, I find it difficult to guess parentage, and I am many times surprised in what goes into them.

Evelyn, How do you like Jordan's Joy? This being it's maiden bloom, you probably don't have a big clump, but if anyone else has this iris and is willing to trade, please let me know. It is for my coworker who is searching for this iris to give as a gift to a friend who lost a loved one named Jordan. I have been unable to find a place to purchase it.

There is a heartfelt story behind this iris:

Note: I have also posted this in another thread. Sorry if you are reading this again:

Here is a late arrival in my garden that is NOID. I'm hoping someone can identify it for me. At least can someone tells me something about the characteristics you see that might help me key it out.

Would you call it a "late season" bloomer or something else?
I believe it would be identified as a "self" because the falls and the standards are the same color.
But what form is it? I know it's NOT ruffled but how do you describe the bloom?
I said the beard is "white", how do you describe the pattern beneath the beard?

Thanks for any help. I'm in California (Central coast), so I will also post this in CA Dreaming.

With help here, I have identified this iris as the historic "Crimson King". Thanks to all!

Louise ~ Maybe someone here can help you with this one. It looks like an old historic to me, but I am not that familiar with it.

Maybe Arlyn, Dave or Paul might have some clues...

There are only a few left in bloom. I saw only one that has buds but hasn't bloomed yet.

Comic Opera has been blooming for a long time.


Aristocracy is a late bloomer.

County Cork is another late one.

Chasing Rainbows is still in bloom. It skipped a year, and slept last year.
Thumb of 2020-06-07/evelyninthegarden/e77bc3

Some peonies that didn't have so much sun are beginning to open. It's finally cooler today, so maybe they will hang onto their petals longer than the others...

The weather has turned cooler after being in the 80's, so the late ones are lasting longer now. Here are some non-iris photos...
This is the last of the wild daisies, though the Shastas have yet to bloom.
