I'm on a mission to collect as many historical pre-1930 iris as I can, and I bought a NOID and Fairy from a fellow last year. Fairy started blooming this week - and I'll be adding pics of Fairy to the data base because I couldn't find a height on it anywhere - and they are all averaging 36"! Anyhow, my NOID is so darned cute! He seemed to think it was (insert the name I forgot here) and thought it was a late 1920s intro. I'll have to go back and look at our emails to jog my memory. Whatever it is, it's a cutie. One pic to show it's bloom, another to show it's size next to TB Day On The Bay.

Give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above. Don't fence me in.

Cindy - Could your species iris be Iris Variegata? Mine blooms after the tall bearded iris.

I. variegata is the start of median MTBs. Just like germanica is the start of our lovely garden bearded irises.

I think it's something different, it's blooming before all but three of my TBs and they all have solid color tips to the falls and very narrow standards. It will be fun trying to figure it out!

I went back to my emails with the seller, and I was way off. He isn't sure but he thought it was Chelles. I think that's probably right after checking out resources like HIPS.
