Wordless Wednesday—At Dusk And At Dawn

This dramatic iris opened overnight, unharmed by a heavy rainstorm. At first I thought it was Iris germanica ‘Batik’ but after seeing it opened I am not sure.

At Dusk - Iris germanica (Bearded iris)

      Thanks Christina. I hope you’ll share it. My yellow ones are usually the first to open but they are just starting to show a few buds. Not sure why they’re late this year.

      Yes,’Batik’ is a reblooming iris, but unlike a yellow pass-along that bloomed its heart out last fall, my ‘Batik’ just has one or two flowers in fall. It may be location though that makes the difference.
