Lovely iris, Roma. Does it repeat well or  disappear? Maybe you have not had it long enough to know. I see that Jacques Amand is listing it. I think I will need to try some!

Ashley, Caroline   I bought it from Jacques Amand last year so this is its first flowering for me.  I think it has a scent but it sits on the bench near Crocus chrysanthus 'Snow Bunting' which is strongly scented so difficult to be sure.  I don't know yet if it will flower again.  I'm not very good with reticulata irises in pots.  A few flowers the second year then a gradual dwindling.  I find Iris histrioides hybrids easier to keep going.  I was very pleased to have 10 bulbs all flowering and true to name .  It too frequently doesn't happen.

The first two photos show iris hyrcana from the Talysh Mnts in Azerbaijan. This is the typical iris hyrcana as we know it.
The last photo shows a plant from the Iranian Talysh that I believe is also iris hyrcana. The flowercolor is much darker however and the flowers are a lot smaller (2,5 cm).
If someone has a better ID, please let me know.....

Great to see these images of the recently described zagrica relatives Luc!

Also good to see this variation in Iris hyrcana.
I have some hyrcana kindly gifted from another member of the forum that were also collected in Iran. They look similar to your Iranian hyrcana but are perhaps not quite as dark.


Can I ask -do you grow some of your ”reticulata“ Iris in slatted pots in the garden and then lift them to store dry for the Summer (Iran Talysh hyrcana image)?

All the reticulate types are planted in pond baskets in the rockgarden.
The baskets are only for easy handling and keeping them seperate because all bulbs are in the same spot.
I don't lift the baskets during summertime, except if summers are very wet (they used to be many years ago  :) then I put an overhead in glass.

Many thanks Luc.

I struggle a bit with reticulata Irises here. I can’t blame the climate as others here do well with them. This year almost all of mine are now under glass growing in half-plunged clay pots in very gritty compost -I think it might be helping.

Can anyone name this one for me please.  I got it as 'Halkis' but I don't think it is.

Iris kolpakowskiana ssp. occinica



Iris pamphylica -I was well impressed by the show this put on last year and to crown it all seed was set. Unfortunately the pot got soaked in the summer through an open vent and every bulb but one rotted. I think I should name the surviving clone Hubris.



Iris zetterlundii EGO.IQ 129, from Kurdish Iraq.



Iris aff. reticulata KMZ 9505 -a teeny-wee Iris which opens its flowers just above the top dressing and remains compact in growth. It originates from Hamadan Province, Iran. The second image gives an idea of its size in comparison to my fat thumb.

I wish my Iris zetterlundi were as healthy as the ones above. It took three years to flower (bought it as glowering sized.. haha) and looked a little suspicious already last year, but now I‘m afraid it‘s doomed. Magnificent flower, though.

Any comment on whether it‘s really virus or possibly caused by low light (the lid of the frame was on most days last week owing to very changeable weather)??
Given the source I got it from, I would not be surprised, not the first plant I got virused from him, but certainly no more, ever..

This season I was mostly surprised by yellowish late flowers of true Iris zagrica from locus classicus in Iran. For comparing I'm entering typically coloured flower from start of season.
