Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on this forum. I got a noid iris a couple of years ago. It bloomed for the first time today and I'm so happy it's a yellow one because I've been wanting yellow irises. It's much smaller than some of my other ones. Is it considered a historic?

It looks like it could be, but hard to id many just on some photos.
Officially the AIS defines historic as any iris introduced 30 or more years ago, so once you know which you have the intro date would be known.
Good luck with the id.

Thanks Dave. I'll probably never know but it's a nice iris and it almost reminds me of a yellow version of the pallida I grow.

It might be 'Alta California'..
The Historic Iris website is a good resource for comparison.. Here are all the yellows shown in an advanced search.

When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.

Thanks Sherry for the link. I bookmarked the site. Thumbs up It definitely looks similar to Alta California. The strange thing is I can't remember where I got them from lol.

Thanks Evelyn! I really enjoy growing irises. This year was a banner year for my irises thanks to the colder weather.

Thanks Evelyn. I have a few pictures I took a couple of weeks ago of my irises in full bloom. Sadly none of them are in bloom now.

Cameron ~ You can still post the pictures. And you can add them to the database as well. They give you acorns when you put pictures in the database.
