I thought that it would be nice to have a thread were we could share our favorite Iris videos. Our own or others.

This one is from last years bloom at Iris-26. I loved it as it was a very warm and beautiful video. It certainly lifted my spirit and hopefully it can lift yours too. Smiling

Beautiful video, William! Thumbs up

I remember watching those videos Gabe linked when looking for a video on how to pollinate irises. I was thinking that if anthocyanins can appear red, purple or blue depending on pH - that might go some way to explain colour variations in the same iris cultivar in different gardens??

Sherry, although I don't know for sure, I have a strong suspicion that it is 'Clotho's Web' :smily:

And I think this is the first iris videos I have ever watched. Except for a short one Hugh Stout had a year or so ago.

Time to dust of this thread and share some favorite iris video finds.
It's still cold outside in many iris lovers gardens, so why not enjoy a little bit of spring and summer here and now. Smiling

That timelapse is great, William. I'd love to do something like that some day (if only I had the right equipment!) with some of my different plants. Thanks for sharing.
