Iris non-bearded 2021
« on: January 23, 2021, 08:16:06 PM »
I grew this Iris unguicularis from seed from SIGNA (Species Iris Group of North America).  The seed was  sown in 2010, and
first flowered in 2020.

Lovely iris, Diane.  Iris unguicularis  never settle down here, more's the pity.

Iris ruthenica nana.  This little fellow lives up to its epithet, with flowers only 6" high.  It has proved tougher than I expected.  Grown for seed collected in Napa Hai, Yunnan, China.  (Sown in 2001.)

Some Pacific Coast hybrids, first two un-named, from SRGC seed many years ago:





Last one is Iris tenax x innominata, from SRGC seed a couple of years ago.

Dave, it is great to see your Pacific Irises. I think the first has a heavy input from Iris innominata. The second one reminds me of Iris 'Broadleigh Rose', and the third may have come from me. Sadly I moved the plant two years ago, and it didn't survive transplant (timing must have been a bit off, or the typical winter frost heave did it in! The Pacific irises are just now starting to bloom here in southwestern Nova Scotia... they came out of winter looking quite thrashed! Are you also a member of the Society of Pacific Coast Native Iris?
Southwestern Nova Scotia,
Zone 6B or above , depending on the year.

A small group of Iris Tigers Eye are just finishing flowering. Some seem to have seed pods swelling. They are alongside many rhizomatous bearded iris. Can these iris hybridise?

Iris bulleyana, raised from seed from various sources.  The variation is interesting.  I'm not sure how "pure" the seed was.

Hannelore, that is so pretty!

Here a new iris for me flowered for the first time this year, it is I.sibirica 'Salamander Crossing', very nice colour combination.
Then another Iris sibirica: 'Hohe Warte' which is a tall plant (at least 1,5m) and very floriferous.
Another white one is 'White Swirl'.
