This is my first full season with a Blackberry Lily (Species Iris (Iris domestica) )...are crimped leaves normal?

So long as the leaves are not soft like rot or insect damage, probably environmental (to warm, to fast). Seen it on my iris with no adverse issues
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank You! It's so weird...the leaves feel nice and strong. We did go from 0-60 in terms of Spring arrival this year, that's probably what caused it. Thanks again!

I'm not sure if it is an example of pineappling, as I have only seen scrunched foliage (like in your 6th photo) rather than rippled foliage. If it is pineappling, the Iris Society of Australia's website says:

"Pineappling - is when the leaves grow short, tight and sort of scrunched. It is caused by climate change, often worse on new stock or when the weather is very changeable. Will come right in time."

I see this a lot on my Louisiana iris. This particular iris and its offspring have been hanging out here for 15 years and are still bent on world domination. I do not think their style has been crimped at all.

Several of my irises did that this year. Nice weather, followed by snow, then warm again, then rain..no wonder the leaves are confused!

Robin, it's nice to know there's a name for it!

Mary, glad to know it shouldn't effect the blooms. They were such a pleasant surprise last year!
