Found this gal growing near a prehistoric stone hut in Provence, Fr in '16. Pulled several corms up by hand, dried over the winter, then planted in '17. Blooming beautifully now. She's a small plant, 8"tall, very vigorous grower. Any idea what I've got here? I'd be happy to send a corm to whoever can I'd it.

Maybe, because of the height, one of these?

a closer pic of the bloom would help.From what I can see of the flower, i. germanica would be a candidate, except they run taller Shrug!

Closeup of mystery June 4 post. If rare or unusual I'd be happy to send corms to who ever would like to have one.

Another closeup. Iris was found in the Forest des Cedres in the L'enclos Des Bores near Bonnieux, Fr.
