iris nusairiensis
« on: June 28, 2016, 11:02:33 PM »
Looking for this one for ages! Can anybody help? Quite a lot of potential swaps in the line of Crocus, some other Iris, various other bulbs - alternatively, happy to buy bulbs or seeds.

Would love to hear of anything available.

Cheers,

Alex

Hello Alex,

the only thing I can offer you is a planlet of an undocumented mutation of cf. Neomarica candida

Hi Hannelore,

Thank you, that's a lovely plant - however, I was looking specifically for Iris nusairiensis....sorry if that wasn't clear enough.

All the best,

Alex

I did have a seed-raised pure white form of nusairiensis at one stage and was able to give an offset to another Forumist in another country. I believe he still has his but mine is long gone I'm afraid. It never set seed and I don't thon the offset has done either. Sorry Alex.

Dear Lesley  ,   the offset of your I. nusairiensis is still alive and flowers most years but has so far refused to set seeds or make any offsets . Here is a photo from a few years ago.

No worries, Lesley. I wish I could even find seed. That white form is very beautiful for sure.

Cheers,

Alex

Alex, though it was a long time ago now, maybe 15 years or more, something vague in my memory is telling me that the seed came from John Richards, of Primula fame, though whether directly or through someone else, (maybe given to someone who shared it,) I don't know.
I do remember that it was assumed to be the blue and I was very surprised when it flowered white. Otto, it's lovely to see it again. So pleased it is hanging on for you. I suppose it needs another clone to pollinate it successfully.

Dear Alex,

I have a couple of pots of different clones of I. nusairiensis; depending how they do in the next couple of months I might well be able to let you have a bulb. PS that image of a white form of nusairiensis looks a little too robust for nusairiensis.  The clones I grow are small, tight plants.  Tim

Welcome to the forum Timothy,

If you are who I think you are then I still grow a number of Iris from back when you were selling seeds.

Hello Timothy,

Sorry to come to this late, I haven't checked in for a while. I have sent you a PM.

Cheers,
