My new 'Eye of the Tiger' - OK, it's only a Dutch Iris, but every novelty in the garden is a wonderful moment!

Hi Sue, and welcome to Cubits.

'Even' Dutch Irises are loved here, LOL. And it's a beautiful picture too.

Glad you're here! Hope you have more pics!

Is there a Dutch iris named "Dutch Oven," I wonder? I think it would be really cute. Your EYE OF THE TIGER looks wonderful!

I. lutescens was the dwarf iris grown in this country before the development of our current SDBs (TB X I. pumila). It was know as chamirises (spelling?). I suppose an earlier name was found.

Do these seem reasonable as labeled?

To me, yes. Lucy can tell us better, she is the pumila expert on here. Or if Anita Moran comes over. But to me they look right, and pictures are nice.
