This iris was grown from SRGC Sdx 2004 as Iris subbiflora, but I was told it is not typical so may be a hybrid or some other species

A few of the species irises that have been flowering.
The first two I need a name as the tag has faded and I don't think I recorded the planting plan.
Iris bicapitata - I seem to have a few colour forms now.
Iris lutescens RBGG Aix en Province 308 from FD. Very small growing. First year flowering.
Iris subbiflora.
Loved you photo above Fermi.

An old pal showed me this wonderful gold and diamond Iris brooch, from the Art Nouveayu period - it is so lovely, I had to share it here .... it  captures the flower so well....

I love the yellow irises in Pat's pictures above! :)

This is an old cultivar 'Flavescens', which does well here. It has been found here in old gardens and some years ago I got a name for this lemon scented iris. In the third picture in front of 'Flavescens' there is possibly 'Gracchus', also an old cultivar. I got it from a friend who had found it growing in the neglected garden of an abandoned old house.
