I have several Odd things happening this year, thought we could share some pictures of odd stuff going on. Weather related I'm sure.
I had 3 Royal Harlequin open on the same day with 4 falls and 4 standards, and 4 of all the internal parts. Wierd!

Then I had 2 Arthouse open on the same day with multiple falls, and only one or two standards, but some of the falls had Multiple beards.

Had lots of nice blooms on this plant for over a week, and the rest of the blooms on the clump(6-8) are fine! Doubt this one is weather, but maybe herbicide drift Shrug! ...Arlyn

I don't like weird iris traits, especially the double beards. I love bushy fat beards but not double ones. It has to be environmental stress.

Good thing you all have let me know this kind of stuff happens sometimes so I don't get all excited thinking aliens have caused plant mutations in my garden. Blinking Blinking Wow, those ARE some odd looking flowers.

I had weird goings-on with Vapor this year -- three falls, but only two standards. On several stalks. Other stalks were fine. It was fine last year. Think Bonnie's right -- environmental stress. I didn't take any pictures -- but I do have witnesses................... Rolling my eyes.

I posted this in the "beards" forum as well, but this is the first "oddity" I have ever found. It was on only one bloom and on one beard.

Well I did have four standards and falls on protocol and jewel baby got wild but she does not need much encouragement. Then there was Flat Broke that formed a bunch of little petal like standards and falls were not much bigger. I posted pics of Protocol but did not take pics of the others.

That's right, Tom! I attribute some of the screwy things I do to alien influences, so why NOT plants, too. Big Grin Hilarious! Hilarious!

Bonnie stole my thought - those garden gnomes messing around again. My first and last Footloose blooms were fine, but in the middle it bloomed with two falls and two open standards. I posted this before in the "ugly iris" thread but here it is:

I think the gnomes stole the third standard & fall to make rain hats!

Chardonnay and Ice has one with a double bearded fall, and other one has a fall that's half fall, and half standard. Very strange! I guess it has 2 1/2 falls and 2 1/2 standards! Rolling on the floor laughing

Similar strange stuff occurring here too! Keep yer garden gnomes under control people! Sticking tongue out

I guess it was from the weather cause I didn't spray anything on the fence weeds this year.

Four falls on Chinese Empress. Not that unusual in first blooms...

A white fall and double beard on Aphrodisiac Never had any problems with this one before.
