Species identification
« on: May 24, 2015, 02:46:18 PM »
I have identification problems with 2 species presently in bloom :

the first one obtained from seeds years ago : I. spuria ssp. musulmanica ? the plant is relativelly high with large flowers.

The second one was purchased years ago unfer the name I. kamaonensis, witch is not, but I think the plant has an himalayan origin : finally I think to I. sikkimensis.

Could you help m ? thank you !

I believe musulmanica is correct for the first one.
Look here  http://signa.org/index.pl?Display+Iris-spuria-subsp.-musulmanica+2

Bio,

I would say Iris halophila [syn I. spuria subsp halophila], the rusty yellow color on the margins of the standards are good indication.
Tivon, in the lower Galilee, north Israel.
200m.
