Iris reticulata 2018

After a period of snow and nightfrosts till -11°C now the Iris reticulata sprouts to flower.
They came under the snow to grow.

Some reticulate Irises.
The first four are of Iranian provenance and come from a very generous forum member. The fifth is from Azerbaijan.

(03) Woops! I see there’s a sap-sucking wee beastie on this plant.

Some more “Retics”.

Iris pamphylica


Iris kolpakowskiana -I have a few forms of this species but I find it difficult to grow. The bulbs are prone to rot and are also often reluctant to come into full growth once the shoot breaks through the top-dressing. I would be most grateful for any advice.


Iris zagrica


Iris bakeriana -I think(???).


Iris reticulata caucasica

Steve, I believe your "bakeriana" is actually Clairette.  Clairette is cross of Iris reticulata x Iris bakeriana, which is why it and Gordon, for example, "look" like bakeriana.  It doesn't help that when you buy bakeriana, you sometimes get Gordon.

Typically the fall blotch on bakeriana is very dark -- ink blue (in addition to the telltale octagonal leaves).

I tend to believe bakeriana is Iris reticulata var. Bakeriana.  Which is to say I believe the species Iris reticulata is very variable.  [I'm a lumper rather than a splitter]

We still have a lot to learn about Reticulata Iris

In the Mardin to Savur area of Turkey bakeriana does vary slightly.




Not a great picture, but here's the commercial bakeriana as sold by Jacques Amand (taken at RHS London Early Spring Plant Fair in 2014)

Thanks Alan.
I had some doubts as to whether my “bakeriana” was the real deal.

Very interesting mutation of Turkish Iris reticulata - on picture it is side by side with normal flower. Will see how permanent will be this colour change.

Janis, do you think this is the same as one of the images I posted above (it was collected in Iran, I have no collection details)?

No, I don't think so. There is another gathering from SLIZE (in 1998) - identical with mine. Today I sacrificed one for herbariu,m + another flower were fixed in details on sticky tape, the rest 4 flowers - all were pollinated
