Iris reticulata season 2020
« on: December 21, 2019, 06:04:52 AM »
Although still is December, 2019, climate changes forces many reticulatas to come out already in December. The first frost by long-term weather forecast here could come not earlier than mid-January. But you well know how trustable are long-term forecasts.
Some reticulatas already opened flowers, those were pictured yesterday, but , but buds are out in aintabensis, sophenensis, kolpakowskiana, kurdica, reticulata KPPZ-206.
Here pictures of Iris reticulata 18IRS-093 from Iran, between Zanjan and Sultaniyeh at altitude 2105 m
Iris reticulata WHIR-190 - another Iranian - from just after vil. Tizh Tizh on side road from Marivan to Sanandaj via Sarv Abad, alt. 1730 m.
and A. McMurtries hybrid 98-MN-1

Some more reticulatas are blooming now. In this entry all are Iranians
17IRS-021 - collected at alt. 1573 m near turn to Shams Abad
18IRS-086 - along road From Khalhal to Mosuleh at alt. 1569 m
Both are similar and collected at only 50 km distance
WHIR-156 - from Pass before Takht-e Soleyman, alt. 2620 m, it was growing together with Iris meda
WHIR-201 - between Salavatabad and Gorgabad. It was growing on steep slopes and rocky outcrops at 2290 m. altitude
All blooms in polytunnel with fully open doors and windows.  It seems that real winter this year will not come here at all.

Here only minus 1.5 in night (inside greenhouse), but irises continue blooming. Here few McMurtrie hybrids, Iris bakeriana from Iran and Iris histrio (now with open flowers) from Hatay province.

Some irises seem to be nicer in buds (or beautiful already in buds) - here Iris histrio from Hatay province some time ago and yesterday. After that I. bakeriana from Iran, Iris aintabensis from Gaziantep in Turkey and as last - Iris sophenensis.

Iris vartanii -two different clones which flowered in December extending into the New Year. In previous years they have flowered in late November.






Iris danfordiae JJA 0.585.900 -a very compact Jim Archibald acquisition.

The first pictures are of Iris histrio - the first show it in buds, next with open flowers (this is from Hatay) and the 3rd - from Yarpuz (S Turkey)
Then Iris kurdica, published by me - at present single one species between all "reticulatas" with black anthers.
The last is one of Iranian gatherings - quite variable - all 3 collected at same place.

Paul, it looks a bit like zetterlundii -which was previously regarded as zagrica (and was being sold as zagrica by the same vendor who was selling AS 09-23). It would be worth posting an image once it is fully open.
