Iris planifolia var. micrantha CRL 1054. A beautifully marked Iris planifolia from Tunisia.  Variety micrantha is not generally recognised and is regarded as a synonym of Iris planifolia by most authorities.   This species is variable and many colour variants and forms have been described, in fact it possesses more synonyms than any other juno iris.   Interestingly the flowers produced by this same plant were considerably darker last year.

Some very fine reticulata clones Luc.  Here is Iris stenophylla ssp. stenophylla LN9817 flowering end of Jan.

Iris stenophylla Seisums 93-260. The epitome of restrained elegance, sombre and diminuitive, just 8cm tall with the blade of the falls pronouncedly pinched, typical of plants from the eastern end of its range.   Note the green and, more or less, even bract and bracteole that distinguisues I. stenophylla from I. persica.

A few own collections of Iris reticulata

Iris reticulata is not native to Oregon, but it has naturalized on my property from a neighbor's planting. It is a very welcome intruder!

I am in USDA zone 8b where temperatures almost never fall below 15F -9.4C.  Rainfall 50" 110 cm + but none  June-September.  We seldom get snow; but when it comes we get 30" overnight. Soil is sandy loam with a lot of humus.

Jeff,

I haven't; but, I will if you like. It will be mid to late summer by the time it ripens.

A plant that I have as Iris rosenbachiana, but it looks more like a nicolai to me.
