I found this on Facebook, and though it was worth posting. So many times people are looking to ID an iris, and post a picture that doesn't help much. This along with information about it's height, bloom time, whether or not there is purple based foliage, and fragrance sure would help a lot in the identification of NOIDs.

Yes, thanks for sharing!!!
I think the people who grow Irises are about as special as the flower itself!

Tom I see those a lot on Facebook too. Thank You! for sharing.

That iris is 'Alcazar' (The Common Purple Iris).
Not only people give others signs, but plants do too.

Tom - Yes! The more detail you can give, the more informed ID suggestions you get in return. Thank You!

I thought it would be a good model of the kind of pictures that are most helpful.
