It has been a good winter for Iris unguicularis, last summer's heat clearly suited them. Getting a bit tatty now, but here are a few pictures.

Nice ones Ralph. I split my main clump and re-planted them last year and didn’t expect flowers this year........ and I was right.

638028-0an adorable miniature: 2 cm wide and leaves of 10 to 20 cm very fine. it is a friend who sowed it under the name of Iris goniacapa.
638030-1
I read the discussion Iris gonicarpa (bearded) / Iris henryi ..
could it be iris henryi?

on the other hand, compared to the photo that can be seen on the Web, it shows very vertical leaves, and not drooping

Probably after it has finished flowering, BUT it resents disturbance and may take a year or two to settle down in a new location.

From the 2017/18 SRGC Seed Ex. I got seed of the following Irises, I. virginica (No. 2194) labelled as 'hybrid' and I. versicolor 'Raspberry Slurp' (No. 2193) and both were sown late September 2018. Both germinated well and today I potted up 6 plants of each.

From my research in Brian Mathew's  'The Iris', virginica, common name Southern Blue Flag, is confined to more southerly parts of USA and grows in marshes, damp pine woods, ditches and wet grassy places in Florida, eastern Texas northwards to south east Virginia. Versicolor is widespread in eastern Canada southwards to Texas and also grows in marshes, swamps, wet meadows and on lake shores.

Given the above it's more than likely that members living in US or Canada sent in the seeds to the Seed Ex. If so a bit of advice wouldn't go amiss? Am I wasting my time trying these in south western England?
