Kasun, I think you may mean Iris foetidissima?

I  haven't got any but I have a friend who has lots of the blue... I'll see what I can do.

Good grief - does Iris foetidissima come in blue (flowers, I'm assuming - I have/had cream as well as the usual red fruited forms which come & go)? Now that does sound like a desirable plant.

I must pay closer attention to mine - but as i recall, the flowers are a subtle ochre shading to a bluish tint with much lining, but 'blue' isn't what immediately springs to mind.
