That's a new one on me Ralph. Just in case you haven't seen it this is what Brian Mathew has to say about it in 'The Iris'

"...... is sometimes grown in gardens. It is a purple-red flowered hybrid, raised by W R Dykes in 1910, between I. fulva and I brevicaulis (= I. lamancei )."

This past winter was kind to the Pacific Coast Iris here in Nova Scotia. This one has been showing well, in spite of the heat. Hopefully I'll have a few more plants with better colour/patterning,  in bloom next year!
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.

 l love the colour of the first iris. If I had it, I would hand pollinate it. Lovely striking colour.

I know these are common plants but they are looking spectacular this year - various Dutch iris hybrids in various parts of the garden

This Iris orientalis originated from a seed (I think) from a neighbour's plant! It came up between rocks in a bulb bed and has been difficult to extricate - so now we just enjoy the flowers and cut it down before the seeds ripen!

I like your Iris orientalis, what a nice plant to get from self sown seed.

how many years has it taken for Iris macrosyphon to come to flower from seed, Fermi?

this fall I also planted Dutch irises, my garden was too poor in flowers this year: it's easy! ;)

Hi Véronique,
the seed was sown in 2016 and germinated in 2017 and I think I planted it out in winter 2019

Hi Leena,
it's nice but a thug! I can't dig it out. There is a large colony of it in a paddock a few kilometres from here which persists without any attention or watering and looks to be getting larger each year.
I prefer the different colour forms of spuria iris such as Iris 'Intensity'
cheers

How very nice irises! My favourites were 'Intensity' and 'Wild At Heart', I have never seen colours like that here:).
