Darren, if you can identify the garden the Iris was in, there are plant lists available for the show gardens online.

Ooh - didn't know that Maggi. Thanks  :)

Picture of their stand on their website suggests it is likely to be Cayeux Iris. Picture is too small but I think I can make out the plant on it.

Hello Darren,

It looks very much like tall bearded 'Dangerous Mood' (Schreiner 2004) which is listed by Cayeux.

Here are two shots of Saturn, one looking under her tresses.
And the ubiquitous Iris tectorum, which I seem to often receive under another name!

Maggi, here is the same plant from 2012 and the colour is much darker in this pic.

Still gorgeous, Michael! Good enough to eat- if blue food were not such an odd idea!

We saw this recently in Scotland ;D I have asked on another thread, but if anyone knows what it might be we'd be most grateful as several of our group were quite taken with it and the owner was unsure.

I don't think it IS that but may as well be. Yours Brian seems to have a band of lighter yellow around the falls. and the flowers are maybe a little stiffer in stature. :-\

The problem with identifying such plants, especially bearded irises, is that the UK, France, the USA, Australia, NZ and no doubt other places too, all have active breeders and all or most seem to be following similar breeding programmes so that what appears to be the same plant can turn up from a few sources and be registered under different names as a result. I saw a number of dwarf bearded forms in the Czech Republic, all of which I have in my own garden yet none had the same name as mine do.

I have two which yours could be but can't remember their names until I resurrect them from the surrounding growth, which I'll do in the next week or two. 'Little Blue Eyes' is not one of then however. ??? ???

Best way to get a particular form or colour you like is to visit an iris nursery at flowering time and order what appeals. Bearded iris rhizomes are usually sent out soon after bloom stops or maybe any time if they are potted. I try to arrange a selection of dwarf potted plants to offer in flower at the spring shows locally.
