Does anyone recognize this iris? It looks similar to Ask Alma but is a tall variety with stalks at right around 40". It grew two bee pods this year with nice big seeds. I'm going to try my hand at getting them to grow, a maiden voyage for me. The seeds have been sitting in a jar lid for a week or so. Is there a step by step process posted somewhere that I can use?
Thank You!

Sure is a pretty one. Historic I am guessing by form, but I am not an expert on historics. Hopefully Arlyn or Dave or others will chime in.

What Leslie said. ...and there is at least one thread with advice on how to grow irises from seeds... somewhere on this forum.
You don't know if it will grow until you try!
