Hello everyone.

I got these irises from trade. I thought of posting them here and hoping that you could help me with their identities.

Very few iris can be ID'd from photo's to be honest. All any of us can do is guess. UNLESS you had a master list and the names had gotten lost or taken then we might have a better idea.

Very true - I have so many of my grandmothers she bought over the years - never cared to keep the names it was nothing to her. Tried for the longest... was told to make a list of best guesses, buy them all, plant around the Iris I wanted to know and see when the bloomed who matched if any... did not sound very doable at all!

I have no master list. I got these irises from trade. I didn't pay attention to their height and bud count and I don't remember taking photos of the entire flower stalk. Next year I will. I am learning. Thanks guys. Smiling Smiling Smiling
