Iris orchioides -bought as Iris capnoides from Jan Jlek but looks to me to be a form of orchioides.


Iris fosteriana -2nd year of flowering, raised from SRGC seed, many thanks to the donor.


Iris bucharica -a relatively compact form.

Magnificent irises and the detail seen so perfectly in your photographs Steve. Makes me wonder whether I shouldn't give up photos altogether!

Steve, I wouldn't worry about that Iris orchioides. These purple glaucous leaves look very special.
With me, Iris rosenbachiana (probably the Harangon form) started blooming yesterday.

Iris narynensis ssp. archibaldii is  interesting and not one we often see. From elsewhere in the Forum, this iris on the show bench, with its  accompanying notes, shown by Jim Almond in 2014  with photos  by  "Veteran Vet" 




 Several years on, there is still little information available  about this plant!

Kit Strange  from RHS Kew   has shown this  photo of an Iris  named  for her sister -  Maja.   



"   Iris "Maja",  named after my sister. An accidental cross of  Iris warleyensis and Iris vicaria. A really nice long flowering hybrid, with great subtle colouring."
