|These are unknowns. |
First one is a white with what appears to be a very light blue veining when it first opens.
Second one is the purples that are in overabundance here and I've been thankful to find
homes for nearly all the ones I've dug up so far.

|So pretty. Both obviously historics. So regal looking.|

|Found another one this morning that opened but brrrrrrrrrrrr it is cold outside today and very windy here.|
I got this more than 5 years ago. Planted it but didn't like its location so moved it 2 years later and it took off.
I plan to divide this one later in the season as it is getting too big for the spot it is in. I would say it is only about
16 inches to 18 inches in height, smaller blooms than some of the others I have but still a pleasing color. Seems like
the stalks are shorter this year. Possibly the weather?

|I'm going to say probably the weather, as it sure looks happy and well grown. |

|Polly: Someone suggested to me that the first one is Florentina. I googled it and came up with this Iris site. It is a match for mine so at least I know now what it is. Your spot on for historical daylilies. |
The second one they thought could be Kochii? But I haven't found a good photo match yet. But then again, purples are so similar they start to all look the same.

|Julia, that site is run by Terry Johnson of New Zealand. He is a member on Cubits, and a friend of mine. I post the site quite often when he has new postings. It's quite something! Glad you found it.|

|Another one blooming. It has 36 inch stalks and the blooms are huge. I have a clump of them near our sidewalk. |
