Native Iris

Another pic taken at Chicago Botanic Garden. I didn't catch the name tag for it, but pretty sure it's a type of native iris... not as fancy as the bearded hybrids, but still very pretty colors.

Beautiful color on that iris, and such detail in the photo. Great job!

Lovely, lavender purple! The white streaks remind me of reefs in the ocean. Thinking

Thank you! Here's the original image, I tilted it to use the 3 in a row and then I think I flipped it left to right. I really need to start always getting names just for banners!

Looks like a type of iris tectorum (crested iris) also know as Japanese roof irises. Really nice to see it used in a banner.

I think you're right, that does look like it, even down to the exact color! Thanks for the ID. They were actually striking in person.
