Thanks for posting these Maggi. They are all so lovely and Iris reticulata has so many beautiful wild forms.
I hardly see any difference from some of the named cultivars (they just probably sell better having a name).

Iris rosenbachiana is a dream!

Yes, thanks for sharing Dimitri and for posting Maggi. That's a stunning collection of beautiful Iris. I wish I could grow half of these but our wet climate is less than ideal for these beauties, so I'll have to admire from afar. Is the I. rosenbachiana growing outside?

Dima has them all growing outside as  far  as  I  know, Tristan.  He may give  some  a  cover  in the  worst  weather, I'm not  sure.
 A few  new  Iris pix from Dima today .....

The first of the new growing season - Iris vartanii
Always this early and as a result vulnerable to frost damage in a bad winter.
