Wonderful to see such strong looking plants, in their natural setting. Thanks for sharing these scenes with us Miriam. :)

They can be quite variable in the wild, especially at the Nahal Poleg habitat. Other habitats seem to have much less variation. Maybe some unwanted hybridization?

Fascinating pictures of Iris atropurpurea in nature Miriam - still a long way to have a similar sight in the garden, but I am working in it... ;)

Lovely studies Fred. Are these all from the same area, i.e. growing close by each other?

I was given a 2 year old seedling of atropurpurea - hope it flowers like the darkest ones shown.

Stunning series of pictures - thanks Miriam and Fred

Fascinating pictures Fred and Arthur!  :o :o :o

Fred, pics 3 & 4 would confuse me - just seeing those two pictures I would have thougt they belong to a different species (or hybrid)... ::)

Arthur - superb pictures, it is similar to Iris barnumae f. protonyma  from Iran, do you know which differences exist?
Checking Kew Checklist I was surprised to see Iris polakii is a synonym of Iris sanguinea var. sanguinea (http://apps.kew.org/wcsp/namedetail.do?name_id=322241) - thinking always to be "species" near to Iris barnumae... ???
